Blake Zubovic already reached double digits in offers, so he is well versed in the experience and meaning of each one.

However, getting one from in-state Penn State comes with added importance for the Belle Vernon (Pa.) High offensive tackle. He added the offer during his visit to campus Saturday.

"It means a lot," the 6-foot-6, 300-pound Zuobivc sid. "It was one of the schools I really wanted, (with it) being an in-state school and their recent success."

Nittany Lions offensive line coach Matt Limegrover was asking Zubovic for a while to visit, and talked about the possibility of an offer when he made the trip.

So Zubovic arrived on campus in time for the pre-practice offensive line meetings, and then saw Limegrover work with the unit on the field.

"(Limegrover) was definitely excited to have me up today and I feel like I am a big priority for them," Zubovic said. "I got to sit in on a meeting and watch coach Limegrover coach on and off the field."

Zubovic's offer list includes MarylandNC State, VirginiaPittsburghWest VirginiaBoston CollegeMinnesota and Northwestern, and this month he already made trips to Temple, Pitt, Virginia and West Virginia.

But the trip to Penn State certainly stood out for a few reasons, particularly the environment.

"What a great family feel and support they have surrounding Penn State football," Zubovi said, "and everyone (is) involved with it."
