NittanyNation: Week in review
By Josh Moyer
NittanyNation takes a look at this week's Penn State football news and what you might have missed:
PSU released an
updated depth chart
late last week, and there were a few surprises.
Minkah Fitzpatrick is primed to be one of the top DBs
in his 2015 class, and it's difficult to find someone more dedicated to his craft. From the 75-minute drives to school to not resting on his days off, Fitzpatrick already means business.
In this video clip, "College Football Live" discussed the
Penn State quarterback situation in 2013
and how Bill O'Brien has been able to lure top QBs to Happy Valley. Earlier in the week, in another video, ESPN also addressed the
importance of adding ESPN 150 Michael O'Connor
Former Heisman winner
Chris Weinke talked about O'Connor
and just what Penn State's getting in this in-depth Q&A.
Darius Fullwood said PSU is going to be one of his top choices
after receiving an offer at a recent camp.
Incoming run-on QB
Jack Seymour turned down several MAC offers for a spot on PSU's roster
. He talked about that and his career goals in a Q&A.
Irvin Charles didn't initially expect PSU to wind up in his top two
this quickly, but he also didn't expect to enjoy the Happy Valley atmosphere so much, either.
We talked underrated recruits, Christian Hackenberg's odds to start and more
in this past week's SportsNation chat
nonconference opponent would most fans like to see Penn State play
? Brian Bennett polled some PSU fans to find out.
Juco DL Cory Johnson said, if he had to commit somewhere tomorrow,
he'd pick Penn State
. His scholarship offer is pending a transcript.
Jarrett Guarantano caught a lot of eyes
at a recent PSU camp and he said his visit to Happy Valley definitely exceeded his expectations.
2015 OL Matt Burrell already has 17 offers, but he offered up his
early opinion on the Nittany Lions
Adam Rittenberg took a look at some of the
B1G's top first-year players to watch
. And, of course, a PSU player happened to find his way on the list.
David Dowell already has PSU in his top three
and he talked about that and more in the most recent edition of "5 Questions."
We shared a
notebook on PSU's June 8 camp
, from who came away with an offer to the top performers.
