Alosi was an under-the-radar recruit and not many Penn State fans were tracking his progress. So here is a chance to get to know him:
On him: "My height is 6-6 and my weight is 285 pounds. I run a 40 time of 4.95."
On where he will play at Penn State: "They haven't told me yet, but I think they want me at offensive tackle. It could be on defense, I don't know, but I think it will be at offensive tackle."
On the decision: "I just knew Penn State was the right place for me. I talked about it with my parents and we all felt comfortable with the decision. So I wanted to get it done – I didn't have a top five or a timetable or anything like that."
On enrolling early (he is at a prep school now): "We'll see. I know they'd like me to be there in January. Whatever they want me to do, I'll do. I'd like to get there early."
On taking an official: "I will be going up there on the first weekend of December. There won't be any other official visits. This is it."
On helping to recruit others in his class: "I'm not really that guy who puts himself out there, but I'll definitely be talking to other recruits on my visit. I will do whatever the coaching staff wants me to do. I will gladly tell anyone looking at Penn State why I want to go there and why it was the right decision for me."
On his college major: "I haven't decided yet. I will start off with general classes and then see what I want to do from there. I have time [to figure it out]. It's such a good school that I can get a good degree in anything."
On the decision to prep for a year: "I wasn't really happy with the offers I had and I knew I wanted to take that year and get better and see what happened. My parents made this all happen — I am glad I was able to get a scholarship — it's for them that I am doing this."
On if he's firm on his decision: "I am 100 percent firm. There's nowhere else for me."
