PSU Weekend Visitors

Plenty of recruits were on hand at Penn State Saturday over the weekend. Hear what two of them had to say about checking out campus.

Penn State hosted a handful of recruits Saturday, including Imhotep Institute standout running back David Williams.

Several PSU commits were on hand for the weekend as well, including Avon, Ohio, cornerback Ross Douglas, Fort Union, Va., four-star quarterback Christian Hackenberg, and Camp Hill, Pa., five-star tight end Adam Breneman.

The uncommitted recruits, most whom were coming back on return visits, had plenty of positive things to say about their trips.

"It went great," Williams told Fight On State recruiting analyst Cory James. "I was really impressed."

And part of that was because of the Philadelphia standout's interaction with the coaches.

"I got to talk to Coach (Ron) Vanderlinden, Coach (Bill) O'Brien and Coach (Charles) London," Williams said.

Combine one-on-one time with the coaches, plus ample time with the current Class of 2013 commits, and what do you get?

"Penn State stands high with me," Williams said.

Several other players made the trip to Penn State Saturday, including New Jersey defensive end Dajaun Drennon.

"I talked a lot with Coach (Larry) Johnson," Drennon told Fight On State. "He explained to me that he can help me be a diverse football player."

That is something that made a big impression with the Timber Creek Regional High standout.

"He explained to me that I was one of the three best defensive ends in my grade," Drennon said. "And that meant a lot to me coming from one of the best defensive line coaches in college football."

Just like Williams, Drennon summed up the visit with high praise.

"Right now Penn State is ranked No. 1 on my list," Drennon said.

Also visiting was New Jersey 2014 defensive back Marques Little.

Stay tuned for more updates from prospects who were on campus over the weekend.
