This new era will honor the many traditions that Paterno helped create. Paterno passed this morning on a weekend that was critical for recruiting and the stability of the program and as Paterno would have wanted it, the program is going forward.
O'Brien and his staff welcomed three verbal commitments to the program today Camas (Wash.) wide receiver Jonathan Warner, Baltimore (Md.) Calvert Hall wide receiver/safety Trevor Williams and Baltimore (Md.) Calvert Hall cornerback Da'Quan Davis to the program.
Scout.com has been able to confirm the new commitments with several sources including text messages from the new Nittany Lions. As soon as the recruits leave campus we will have more from them.
Davis is ranked as the No. 50 cornerback prospect in the nation. Williams is listed as the No. 86 ranked safety prospect. Warner is the son of legendary Nittany Lion Curt Warner.
