Stupar Joins Lions

On the heels of picking up Josh Marks last week, Penn State quickly landed their third verbal last night. Nathan Stupar from State College High School (PA) committed to the Nittany Lions passing on offers from Virginia, West Virginia, Maryland, Boston College, Stanford, Rutgers and Pitt.

Nate is 6'2", weighs 220 lbs, and runs a 4.61 40-yard dash. He is projected to play either LB or TE for the Lions.

In 2005 Stupar won First Team AAAA All-State honors at TE. During his junior year he had 44 catches for 644 yards on offense and recorded 56 tackles, 10 sacks, and an INT on defense.

Stupar drew attention to himself last season during State High's game with Harrisburg Bishop McDevitt High School. Many scouts were in attendance that night, including PSU, to get a look at top RB prospect LeSean McCoy (featured in picture). But by all accounts the night belonged to Stupar who dominated on both sides of the ball.

Stupar has the genes of a football player. His dad played DE for Penn State in the 1970's. His brother currently plays TE for Virginia. His uncle, Jeff Hostetler, played QB for PSU before transferring to West Virginia. He later went on to lead the New York Giants to a Superbowl victory over the Buffalo Bills in Superbowl XXV.

Welcome to the good guys, Nate.
