If you haven't noticed, we here at Roar Lions Roar enjoy fun little nicknames and fun sayings (tuddies, Rich Home Saquon, etc.). So it overjoyed us as a staff when Penn State Football released a video of most of the new recruits sharing their nicknames from high school.

Here's a breakdown of what all of the 2017 commits are used to being called, so you can root for them appropriately in the future.

C.J. Thorpe- Savage

Jonathan Sutherland- Jur (????)

Sean Clifford- Cliff

Yetur Matos- Big Yee

Brailyn Franklin- Deuce, Beast Mode, Wild Thing, Batman

Fred Hansard- Big Fred

Lamont Wade- Honcho

D.J. Brown- Money Brown

Mac Hippenhammer- Spiffy

Journey Brown- JB, Boogie

Brelin Faison-Walden- Bray, Novacane, Bray Bray

Damion Barber- Ice Man, Booga (?), Dame

Ellis Brooks- EB, Ell

K.J. Hamler- Mooka, The Human Joystick

My personal favorites are The Human Joystick, Honcho, and Booga (or is it Booger). But that's just me. Which ones do you like best? Sound off in the comments.
