    Crazy. Another recruiting analyst out there saying that Michigan dropped the ball recruiting Lance Dixon. Inexplicably stopped contact for awhile. Just another in a long list of f***-ups. But keep pumping sunshine about what a great coach he is.

    Hard to believe anybody actually went down or up when nobody even played a game.

    Who wouldn't want to play for that guy? I mean, Rome and Paris are pretty great - just look at this production quality of this.

    Right? How much you want to bet more care and effort is put into their trips to Europe than in letters (if ever sent) to potential recruits?

    Thought that Zach Harrison was Penn State's top uncommitted target. What's happened?

    Zach Harrison is still the TOP uncommitted target left on board. Sometimes these guys (analyst's) get overwhelmed by the fact that he is right under the nose of OSU so there is no chance of him going anywhere else. So they forget about him. Typical!

    P.S - Never count out JF and crew!

    I'd prefer that everything go perfect during their Michigan OV and then these two recruits say, nah, Penn State is the better place to be.

    Precisely. I would rather that Michigan put on their best possible show, and still not be enough. That would truly put the fear of God into them.

    In the past, Michigan would (rightly, perhaps) assume that if they wanted a guy that we had or also wanted, all they had to do was ask. It's time they learned that those days are long, long gone.

    Is Greg Pickel PennLive’s main PSU guy? I’ve noticed lately that none of his articles offer much insight and mostly parrot stuff that other people have already posted on social media. Big downgrade from when Audrey was there.

    Nah, a 'screw-up' by them would be more effective IMO.

    You are correct. PL primarily uses AP,Washington Post, Huff Post, Philly.Com, Pitt Gazette, NY Times etc for sources, then will add a few words-paragraphs to the article for news. Pickel is wired in with various PSU football social media sites. He then parrots out the info. Sometimes he offers links, other times he doesnt. Snyder was a big loss for PL.

    I’m in this camp. I remember a few short years ago when Harbaugh had all the hype in recruiting and we lost a few recruits to Michigan (Hill, Nordin, Jeter, Hudson).

    Those days are already long in the rearview, and it would be satisfying to continue to see it paid back with interest.

    Any thoughts on when we might get the next verbal and who that might be?

    Saleem Wormley is committing July 23 and he is a PSU lean at the moment. It’s possible any of Dixon, Johnson Jr, or Metchie commits after Spring OV season too

    What date is Lasch Bash? I think it is prior to Saleem's July 23rd commitment date?

    Metchie has visit with Alabama next.

    Penn State target John Metchie, a four-star wide receiver from the Peddie School in New Jersey, talked to Blue-White Illustrated's Ryan Snyder about his visit. Metchie said his family made the official visit with him and his mom was "real impressed with the campus."

    "On top of that, when you look at what's going on there currently, they have something special going on there," Metchie told Snyder. "They've already had a lot of success on the field, so when you add in this last recruiting class and the one they're bringing in this year, the future is bright at Penn State."

    Gone are the days when we had to parse every picture out of Lasch Bash and try to figure out if the recruit was truly on board, or not. Things like whether or not the index finger was fully extended, or whether the kid was standing in the middle or the side of the photo, or how enthused they looked.

    We've certainly come a long way.

    How much does having official visits in May/June versus December/January help a northern school such as Penn State?

    Think it helps, but PSU hasn't had a commitment from the warmer climes so it's hard to say. Also, having kids up in the Fall on a football Saturday ain't bad either.
