Will Alosi Enroll Early?

Anthony Alosi verballed to PSU in the middle of November, adding a powerful lineman who has made the most of his year of prep school. The recruit made his official visit to PSU this past weekend and discusses whether he will enroll early.

A surprise commit to Penn State's recruiting class recently came in the form of New Jersey offensive lineman Anthony Alosi.

Having prepped for a year at The Hun School, Alosi finally turned his preferred walk-on invite with the Nittany Lions into a scholarship offer. He was an under-the-radar recruit, but his strong technical improvement landed him the scholarship offer.

And this past weekend, Alosi made a trip out to his new campus home for his lone official visit on the calendar – and he'll be returning soon to put on the blue and white for keeps.

"The PSU trip was amazing and I can't wait for the next couple years of my life," Alosi told FightOnState.com. "I have decided to leave early and get a head start on classes and workouts."

The early enrollee loved everything about the visit.

On Friday, the lineman arrived and got settled in then sat in on the positional meeting. Afterward, he followed the team to practice. Then, he and the other recruits took the same bus ride the players take on game day and followed the same steps into Beaver Stadium as they went in the locker room and then went on the field. Following that experience, they then had dinner with all the players and Alosi went back with his host and hung out with the guys on the team for a quiet, low-key evening.

The next day started well with breakfast at Allen Street Grill followed by a meeting with his position coach, a basic academic meeting then a tour of the facilities and the state of the art weight room. The recruits then gathered and watched practice and he participated in a question and answer time afterward with the players. After a brief rest time to close his eyes for a few, Alosi got dressed up for dinner then went out at night with the players and recruits for a fun night of hanging out and getting to know campus life a bit better.

Much like the previous day, Sunday unfolded with breakfast first on the agenda. Then, for one last time on the weekend, Alosi talked to the coaches and then hopped into his car and went back home.

Alosi was clear on what excited him most from last weekend's official visit.

"I learned a lot about the great tradition," Alosi said. "And I feel like I'm going to get along with the guys easily."

Alosi told FightOnState.com that he confirmed with The Hun School on Thursday that he will be enrolling early at Penn State.
