Offers to junior college prospects have been few and far between over the last few years at Penn State, but the Lions sent one out on Tuesday morning.
It went to offensive lineman T.J. Bradley, who checks in at 6-foot-9, 290 pounds according to his 247Sports’ profile.
The Lackawanna College recruit plays in the Class of 2018, but little is known about him otherwise. Assuming his size checks out, though, that’s all one needs to know to figure out why West Virginia, Minnesota, the Lions, and others have offered.
Penn State’s last get out of Lackawanna was tackle Paris Palmer, who graduated last year.

Bradley will graduate in December, so he would be a mid-year enrollee at the school of his choice.
Penn State already has two tackles committed, three-star Muskegon, Mich., junior Antwan Reed and four-star Stafford, Va., product Nana Asiedu, in this class.
The other offer that went out on Monday was to Class of 2019 Clayton, N.C., defensive end Savion Jackson, who is a four-star recruit according to 247Sports. He now has seven offers, and at 6-foot-2, 245 pounds, he projects as one of the top recruits in the country in the next cycle, as 247Sports already ranks him as the No. 15 player in his class.
