PICK SIX: Monday Recruiting Notes

Marcus Allen

Review the latest developments on the recruiting front for Penn State football coming off its big prospect weekend from FOS recruiting analyst Greg Pickel.

Coming off its monster recruiting weekend there have been a lot of developments with Penn State Class of 2014. Here is a review of six major developments coming out of the big weekend event.


I caught up with new safety commit Koa Farmer. I'll leave most of it for the story, but he did joke the last time he saw snow was when he was five. Farmer said Saturday happenings (which you can read about in the OV story) really sealed the deal for him. Further, he expects to play strong safety, and very much buys into the defensive scheme Bob Shoop is selling. In a similar vein from a yet to be written story, fellow safety commit Marcus Allen felt the same way. Expect Farmer to start working at SS come camp time, with Allen at FS.


I know many have been asking about Amani Oruwariye and Lloyd Tubman, but I haven't heard from either as of early Monday morning. Oruwariye did respond to let me know he didn't commit (it was ultimately Blacknall) but didn't care to offer comment on the visit. This is a pretty strange situation there, as he has been very insightful before his visit, while it's par for the course for Tubman, who had been hit or miss previously.


One name I did not expect to be confirming as an unofficial visitor Saturday was Kentucky class of 2014 running back Charles Walker. He was here, and has a preferred walk-on offer according to Scout's Brian Eldridge. He also has a Western Kentucky scholarship offer, and while anything is possible, I would be sort of surprised to see him pass up the full ride to walk on. I'll try to get in touch with him later Monday.
