We are fully into offseason mode. Official visits for the Class of 2020 won't begin until April 1 and all us Penn State football fans have to look forward to for now is the Blue-White Game. But we're here to keep you up to date on everything that happens in between!
Henry gray's Top 8
Penn State made the cut for 2020 four-star cornerback Henry Gray's top eight schools. The other seven schools are Auburn, Ohio State, Kentucky, Clemson, Georgia, Tennessee, and Florida. Gray seems likely to take all five official visits and drag this out to the end. It's tough to have any idea where he'll ultimately end up.

Julian fleming trims his list
In case you missed it over the weekend, Julian Fleming cut his list of suitors. As was expected, Penn State made his top-six.
Pryor takes in happy valley
2021 four-star running back Evan Pryor made the trip this weekend to Happy Valley, and even took in THON. It was a true one-on-one experience for the highly-touted back as Aaryn Parks didn't make the trip as expected, so it was all-hands-on-deck for Pryor. He has been on campus several times over the last year and he's extremely fond of the Nittany Lions. One look at his Twitter is enough to prove that. Pairing him up with Dont'e Thornton in the 2021 class would give the Lions two of the more talented skill position players in the class.

Penn State had quite the run out west, offering four prospects from St. John Bosco High School (Bellflower, CA).
2020 safety Kourt Williams (St. John Bosco) landed an offer from coaches Terry Smith and Tim Banks themselves.

Another 2020 safety from St. John Bosco, Jonathan Vaughns scored a Penn State offer as well.

Seeing the trend? 2021 wide receiver Beaux Collins received a Penn State offer.

Rounding out the big four from the school, 2020 defensive end Kobe Pepe also landed an offer from PSU. I like to imagine he is the name-child of Kobe Bryant and Pepe.
