Penn State recruiting target has PSU ties in his family; Lions crack top 6 for 4-star offensive tackle, and more
Today’s Penn State football news headlines feature plenty in advance of the Blue-White game and recruiting nuggets on offensive linemen Matt Rosso and Rasheed Walker.
Rosso is a 6-6, 260-pound offensive lineman from Pennsbury High School who just picked up offers from Virginia and UMass. He’s slated to visit Penn State for the Blue-White game and tells Scout’s Brian Dohn he has plenty of PSU ties in his family. Rosso is currently an unrated, under-the-radar prospect, according to Dohn, but the secret is getting out with interest from the ACC and Big Ten.
“Both of my parents went there, and my brother (not playing sports) is there now,” Rosso told Scout. “(The coaches) there are pretty high energy. Coach (James) Franklin is from around here. He’s from Neshaminy.”
Walker is a four-star tackle prospect from North Point (Md.) High School who stands at 6-5 and 280 pounds. He ranks as the No. 13 tackle in the country and No. 110 player overall, according to 247Sports, and holds 26 offers. Walker named Penn State in his top six schools, along with Maryland, North Carolina, Ohio State, Rutgers and Virginia Tech.
