Penn State has made it into Tyler Rudolph’s top-five.
A Waterbury, Conn., four-star safety, he’ll be on campus for the Blue-White game this Saturday for an official visit. The Lions lead the way at the moment with Ohio State, Michigan, Florida, and Clemson all trailing but fighting hard.
“With them it just feels like a family,” Rudolph said recently about the Lions.
“The amount of love they show is crazy.”
A decision is not expected soon from the 6-foot-1, 205-pound prospect, but he is likely to decide by the end of the summer so that he can focus entirely on his senior season.
C.J. Holmes back on PSU’s radar?
Penn State recruited C.J. Holmes when he was at Cheshire Academy in Connecticut, but it lost out to Notre Dame. Late last year, however, Holmes was booted from the Fighting Irish’s roster after he was charged with shoplifting in December.
Could his next stop be at Penn State?
QB targets heading elsewhere
If Penn State is going to take a second quarterback commit in this cycle, it’ll have to send out some new offers.
Two of its top targets to potentially join three-star Ta’Quan Roberson committed elsewhere over the weekend, as Connecticut four-star Taisun Phommachanh picked Clemson while Iowa three-star Max Duggan pledged to TCU.
The Lions should continue to push for a second arm, and it will likely do so more extensively during summer camps, when passers can come to town and potentially earn an offer.
