A lot has happened since we last checked in on the recruiting trail (apologies), so let's just jump right into it.

New offers

2019 Prospects:

A former BYU commit, Siaki Ika is one of the most sought-after uncommitted defensive tackles in the country. He's currently seen as a heavy Alabama lean but it's quickly become clear that he could battle for early playing time if he were to come to Happy Valley. Zach Williamson could be the offensive tackle that James Franklin goes out on a limb for. While he's currently committed to Louisville, his crystal ball is trending towards West Virginia.

2020 Prospects:

Fraziars plays receiver and safety in high school, but his future is probably on the offensive side. At 6'4/185, he has the body of the guy who could become an elite outside threat. Omari Thomas could have a career on either side of the ball. At 6'4.5/301 he's already the size of an FBS lineman.

2021 Prospects:

247 does not yet have composite rankings for the 2021 class but it's expected that Harris, Wilcoxson, and Brooks will all be four-stars when they are released. Sanders had a phenomenal freshman season down in Texas, completing about 53 percent of his passes for 2360 yards and 34 touchdowns. One of his two crystal ball predictions has him attending Florida State like his Hall-of-Fame father. 

Lions make zipperer's top six

2019 tight end Keon Zipperer put the Nittany Lions in his top six schools. Zipperer is the fourth-ranked tight end in his class and the 19th ranked player in Florida. With the commitment of tight end Brenton Strange, it's hard to imagine Zipperer ending up with the Nittany Lions.

Zach Harrison is terrifying

Zach Harrison is at the top of everybody's big board at the moment. The 2019 prospect is the No. 5 overall player in his class and absolutely ate during his last game.

Johnson Jr. Gone in a flash

Penn State commit Michael Johnson Jr. is making a mockery of Oregon high school football. Please enjoy this video of him running 93 yards to the house.
