    Karamo Dioubate & Shaka Toney verbally committed to Penn State.

    Rashad Wheeler verbally committed to Pitt.

    Cary Angeline verbally committed to Southern Cal.

    Pretty sure the only Penn State possibilities left on this list as of today (8/27/15) are Pryts and Hamlin. The others would have to be walk-ons as Penn State’s 2016 slots are nearly full.

      Penn State gets Hickory S Andrew Pryts…who for some reason is not on your list event though Scout, 247, and Rivals all have him in PA’s top 20.

      So… how does a kid with offers from Ohio State, Michigan, Michigan State, Alabama, Pitt, WVU and Penn State not make your Top 50? You’ve got guys on your list with offers from Toledo and Bowling Green…fine FBS schools in their own right…but not Ohio State, Notre Dame or Alabama. Thoughts?

        Um, he is No. 8 on the list.

          OK. I am officially a goof. I searched on Pryts and obviously fat-fingered the spelling. I’m definitely comfortable calling myself out as a butthole when doing stupid stuff like that.
