Caeden Wallace will be a fixture in the 2019 recruiting cycle, and Saturday he got a taste of what being an elite prospect will be like.
The 6-foot-6, 300-pound Wallace, who plays at Princeton (N.J.) Hun, spent the day at Penn State and left with an offer.
"This Penn State offer is awesome," Wallace said. "I'm humbled and grateful that the staff at Penn State believe in my talents and abilities. I work really hard in the weight room, classroom and on the field, so offers really mean a lot."
"It was a great day," he said. "Even though it was rainy, the campus was still beautiful. I saw the main buildings for athletics and academics, but what really stood out was Beaver Stadium. I really look forward to the possibility of playing in front of 107,000 fans."
Wallace spent a lot of time speaking with the coaching staff, including offensive line coach Matt Limegrover.
"The message from the coaching staff was very positive and the entire staff was very welcoming and open," Wallace said. "I really appreciated their hospitality.
"Coach Limegrover is a great guy and coach. He's genuine and focused. He wants what is best for you as a player, while also having the entire team in mind. I could see myself playing for him."
The day was, as Wallace said, eye-opening and special for many reasons. However, a few things stood out.
"The coolest thing was probably looking at the facilities, specifically for football," Wallace said. "The weight room, training room and nutrition center are second to none."
