There are a lot of advantages to hosting night games in your own stadium, but none are perhaps as impactful on the future of a program as the recruiting advantage it offers. Most high school games take place on Friday nights or midday on Saturday. That can make it difficult for prospects to make it to the campus of their choice to take in college football games on Saturdays. However, 7:00 or later time slots make such arrangements a lot easier.
It just so happens that Penn State and Indiana will be kicking off their game at 7:30 pm ET. As a result, the Nittany Lions will once again have a nice handful of prospects on-hand for this one.
- 2022 Wide receiver Kaden Saunders (Westerville South, OH)
- 2023 Cornerback Lamont Payne (Chartiers Valley, PA)
- 2023 Linebacker Jordan Hall (IMG Academy, FL)
- 2023 Athlete Rodney Gallagher (Laurel Highlands, PA)
- 2024 Safety Ronnell Davis (Roman Catholic, PA)
Be sure to check back, as we will add any more names that pop up to this list.
As we mentioned earlier in the week, 2022 quarterback commit Drew Allar and his team are getting the ESPN treatment this week. The Media and Mentor showdown will be shown on ESPN2 today (Friday) at 7:00 pm ET. Be sure to tune in and get a great look at the future of the Nittany Lion quarterback room.
