The Penn State staff is on the recruiting trail, and FOS has compiled a list of some of their top recruiting targets.

Here's what some of PSU's top targets had to say about their visits:
Coach Rob Vanderlinden paid Valley View HS MLB Nyeem Wartman a visit Tuesday.
He told me that they talked, "small talk," and "the coaches have showed a lot of interest in me."
Vanderlinden came to Wartman's track meet, where Wartman ran a 10.85 in the 100m.
What did Vanderlinden think of his speedy performance? "He was loving it," Wartman said.
And as for Wartman's feelings on PSU? He simply said, "I like them."
I also spoke with Armani Reeves -- who the coaches have yet to visit this week. He is unsure of the day but they will be in West Roxbury, Mass., targeting Reeves and PSU commit Camren Williams, but it will be sometime this week.
The good news on Reeves is PSU has already made it into his top five.
And as for Williams, he has been doing some recruiting of his own for Penn State.
"He is in my ear about every day," Reeves said of Williams recruiting for the Lions.
The two have played football together since fifth grade, so Williams has quite a bit of influence on Reeves.
Another top target for the coaching staff is Massachusetts WR Canaan Severin. Coach Bill Kenney paid him a visit Tuesday, but Severin was out from school sick.
But it wasn't a complete loss for the PSU coaching staff.
"He stayed and talked to my coach for about an hour about me," Severin said.
As for Kenney and Penn State? Severin is still very interested.
"I hope he comes back," Severin said. "I was mad I missed him."
