One of the top remaining targets on Penn State's board in the 2021 recruiting class is Michigan running back Donovan Edwards. The high four-star prospect showed that he's still considering the Lions as he included them in his top-seven schools.

Along with Penn State, Edwards named Alabama, Georgia, LSU, Michigan, Notre Dame, and Oklahoma as his top group.

Edwards has long been on Penn State's radar, and the interest has been mutual for a while. Still, without visits able to take place this fall, it will be a tough sell for James Franklin and Ja'Juan Seider to bring the talented back to Happy Valley, even with the team's recent sterling track record of success at the position.

Edwards doesn't have any documented visits to Happy Valley since earning his offer despite his interest, though it's safe to assume at least a few would have occurred by now if not for COVID.

According to the 247Sports Crystal Ball, Michigan is the likely destination (90% of the prediction favor the Wolverines). Don't count out Franklin and Seider just yet, but it would be a tough pull at this point.
