2015 OL Matt Burrell Jr. (Fredericksburg, Va./Chancellor) thought long and hard about attending a Penn State camp last week, but his plans changed when he suffered a minor injury and decided to rest instead.

The 6-foot-4, 278-pound prospect hoped to show the staff his ability up-close this summer, but Burrell wasn't too disappointed about missing his chance. After all, the Nittany Lions already liked what they saw on film because they called to offer more than a month ago.
