Anderson-Butts get closer to commit date

Shaquon Anderson-Butts, a four-star WR out of Harrisburg, Pa. and current teammate of Penn State commit Micah Parsons, tweeted out Wednesday that he would commit at some point this summer. He currently holds 19 offers (after Michigan State offered yesterday), but put Penn State in his top-five back in December along with Maryland, Pitt, Virginia Tech and West Virginia.

In yesterday's FtF, we mentioned in the pay links section that Penn State would be hosting a defensive back from Texas during the week. Yesterday, it was publicly confirmed that Trent Gordon (Manvel, TX) was the one who braved the cold on his visit to State College. 

Gordon also visited Ohio State and Michigan on his swing up north. He's a three-star cornerback with 31 current offers.

Happy Valley weekend visitors

Tyreke Smith, four-star defensive end (No. 178 in the nation according to the 247Sports Composite), missed out on a visit to Happy Valley earlier this week with the winter weather, but is set to make his way to see Penn State this weekend. 

According to RLR Recruiting Manager Nick Polak, five-star commit Micah Parsons looks to be trying to make his way to State College as well. Parsons hasn't been on campus since the Ohio State game, so Coach Franklin and staff will look to make a big impression if he can find his way up to campus.
