Huge 24 Hours for Fera

Texas kicker Anthony Fera has been consistently listed as one of the top kickers in the country and over the past 24 hours he has started to pull down some nice scholarship offers to back it up.

The wait for Anthony Fera, a 6-foot-2, 230-pound kicker from St. Pius X High School in Houston, Texas is over, as he received some great news when he found out that one of his top schools was stepping to the plate with a scholarship offer.

"Things are pretty good," Fera began. "Penn State offered. I was really surprised at first. My dad came running in to the room with the news after he got the email. It was nice because Penn State is one of my top two schools."

Penn State was not the only school that Fera has been in contact with in the last 24 hours.

"Kansas State came through this morning with an offer," Fera informed. Their main priority is special teams and they have had one of the best special teams over the past 10 years, so that is a good fit for me."

"Last night Coach Peterson from Ohio State asked my dad to give him a call, and they offered me a gray shirt offer. They are one of my top two schools as well, and if they were to offer me a full scholarship it would make things tougher."

For the time being it looks like the Nittany Lions are in the drivers seat, but things could still be up in the air as far as a commitment time frame is concerned.

"Right now Penn State is probably my top choice," Fera admitted. "I am just taking it day by day. I would like to commit before the season, so I could focus on school, but I would not mind taking a visit to a school like Kansas State."
