I was more stressed watching this than I was watching Columbus in playoff hockey OT on Saturday vs. Boston.

I'm sure McCord saw what Ryan Day did with Haskins last year and is intrigued. I still think PSU has a shot there, especially if they look good on offense this year. 2021 is a long way away. 

Carmody is a big unknown. He's visited PSU a ton, but OSU certainly has made a move. I'd expect Penn State to get him back on campus sometime this spring, however.

I honestly don’t think there’s more to it than Tommy didn’t transfer last year because he was gonna be the guy this year. The foot injury has opened the door for Clifford and he has closed the gap enough to at least leave the job open into the fall. Tommy has one year left to be the guy, and he can’t wait until August to find out if he’d have that at PSU.

I wouldn't read too much into the ebbs and flows with any of the elite guys. Yes, he's been to Clemson recently (and Ohio State), but he's at PSU frequently, as well. Elite players are going to take lots of visits, and you probably won't have a great feel for where they end up until the very end.

With all of that said, I do think he ultimately ends up at Penn State.
