Julian Fleming is getting closer and closer to making a college decision. The five-star prospect and Catawissa native has narrowed down his list of potential schools to just six, with the Nittany Lions making the cut. They are joined by Alabama, Clemson, Georgia, Ohio State, and Oregon.

As the No. 5 player nationally and top-ranked receiver in the 2020 class, Fleming is the staff's top priority on offense for this upcoming class. He has been to campus more times than any other prospect in the class, a byproduct of the school's proximity to home and the fact that his girlfriend is a student there. He was on campus once again this weekend, marking the second time he's paid the staff a visit this month. He attended Junior Day a couple of weeks ago.
The Nittany Lions look like the favorite to earn his services, but with plenty of time before the first National Signing Day, anything can happen. If they were to earn his services, it would mark the second time in three years that Penn State landed the nation's top wide receiver.
