It comes down to PSU not recruiting in Philly as hard as they should be. Many of the kids from Philly want to get out of the urban environment they live in. PSU would rather go to Texas then hit the Philly, NYC, DC, and Baltimore markets.
Amen Brotha. I grew up in Chester and played Hoops with alot of D-1 recruits back in the day. Theres plenty of talent to go round In the Phila /Delco area as we speak and tons of PSU fans as well. You can still hit the Palestra and see Nittany Lion garb somewhere at every game. Its simply a failure of commitment imo to make noise and bring a strong presence to the Phila. area. I guarentee you if a big name coach with a national reputation coached the Nits and so desired to hit Phila , Blue chippers would line up strong with the likes of Pit, Nova, Yukon , UNC, Duke etc. But my opinion couldnt ever be tested without such a coach .
