Three blue-chip prospects unveiled their top college choices on Friday night, and Penn State made the cut for all three.

The four-star LB out of West Bloomfield, MI, will officially visit Penn State next weekend. James Franklin will certainly be looking for a companion to recent five-star LB commit Brandon Smith. The home-state Spartans hold the edge in the 247Sports Crystal Ball, but this one is far from over.

A four-star RB out of Oakland, Jones has never visited Penn State, and was just offered in late March. If he makes it to campus before the early signing day, take note. Penn State would love to take a second running back in addition to recent four-star commit Devyn Ford in this class.

Ja'Juan Seider's South Florida grind could be the latest workout craze, but it's really the dividends of hiring an ace recruiter with contacts in one of the nation's most fertile recruiting bases. The former Florida commit bailed with the coaching change in January, and has since visited Florida State, Miami, Ohio State, and Michigan. Seider and Franklin would absolutely love to add a player like Dunmore to this class, and he has said he intends to visit Happy Valley at some point.
