He seems to have some of the physical traits of Parsons, and it would be great to have a Parsons like playmaker at LB going forward.....
There seems to be a huge gap between Parsons .9982 #5 overall and this young man .9069 #253 overall. Now what may be interesting will be which one contributed the most to PSU on the field when their respective college careers are finished.
PSU got one very good year from Micah. Considering that he is now a multi millionaire, I certainly don't criticize him for his decision. However, IMO, there are many others who (played 3 or 4 years) that made greater contributions to the PSU Football Program.

Fortunately, the .9982 versus .9069 will mean absolutely nothing once Talley steps onto the practice field, and then into game action for the Nittany Lions.... ;)

Talley may not quite have 4.39 40 yard dash speed, but his 100 meter time seems to indicate that he will be a very athletic and fast college defender, once he learns to play within the responsibilities of a college defense..... hopefully adjusting as fast to the college game as Parsons and other top PSU defenders did.

Hope springs eternal.....

DE Wylie is not as highly rated as some other DE's on PSU's board, but he seems to be exploding somewhat with his Spring season. Does not seem to have the size to play DE in the B10, so maybe he's another in the mold of Parsons and Talley that could end up at OLB.......

Janak's highlight video shows him playing several roles on his team's offense and LBer on defense. His speed makes him an intriguing prospect. I have a hard time believing we will be able to generate much buzz with him. He has a Who's Who of midwestern Power 5 schools offering him (not to mention Army, Navy, and several Ivys). Maybe if we can get him on campus and have him see those beautiful hills and mountains in Happy Valley he will know that there is a lot more to life than dreary flat farmland.

A couple of CB's for players to PSU over the last couple days by JC Shurburtt, "South Carolina insider", all at a "5"/"medium" confidence level:

Ramon Brown (RB, .9247, #8 in VA)
Ryan Brubaker (OT, .9103, #7 in PA)
Keenan Nelson (CB, .9507, #3 in PA)

These players seem like priority targets that would be great additions to the class.

I think Allen was always a Rutgers lean and PSU 100% was one vote
I think he had a few PSU votes on Rivals FC, but they flipped to Rutgers today. Snyder put in a FC for Rutgers, too. Too bad......good looking prospect.

Not that Rutgers will probably ever become anything more than a lower- to mid-tier bowl team, but Schiano is doing some solid work on the recruiting trail.
