Tailback Mark Allen (Hyattsville, Md./DeMatha Catholic) became the first member of Penn State's 2014 recruiting class Monday night, and he recently talked to NittanyNation at length about his commitment and upcoming visit.

The Nittany Lions were the first to offer the 5-foot-7, 185-pound prospect -- and the PSU fan said that was the offer he wanted most. He committed on the spot Monday night, and he said that day is now permanently etched into his memory.

NittanyNation: So what was Tuesday like at school? Was your Penn State commitment still kind of a secret, or did everybody know by then?
