Encouraging News

Jon Mahoney from rates Penn State on of his top five hottest schools in the eyes of high school recruits.

Coach Joe Paterno and his assistants recruited well in Pennsylvania last year, landing Downingtown East (Exton, Pa.) quarterback Pat Devlin. Penn State did even better with out-of-state recruits, signing the likes of Christ the King (Middle Village, N.Y.) defensive lineman Maurice Evans and Granby (Norfolk, Va.) wide receiver Chris Bell. Penn State got off to a fast start in its recruitment of Class of 2007 stars, snagging pledges from stellar recruits like Central Catholic (Greensburg, Pa.) wide receiver Nick Sukay and Brother Rice (Bloomfield Hills, Mich.) linebacker Chris Colasanti.

It seems the organizational changes the team made in recent years of moving Fran Ganter into the AD office and bringing on Mike McQuery as the recruiting coordinator are paying off. Penn State has had two great recruiting years back to back and this year is shaping up to be another good one. So much for those who said the game had passed Joe by. He continues to show he can adapt with the best of them.
