Grimm Happy With PSU Visit

The big offensive lineman from western Pa. checked out the Nittany Lions Saturday. Though he did not receive an offer, he felt the trip was productive.

Michael Grimm didn't leave University Park with an offer Saturday. The junior offensive tackle from Bethel Park (Pa.) wasn't expecting one, though, meaning the time he spent on Penn State's campus was more about continuing to get to know the Nittany Lions' coaching staff.

“It was a lot of fun. We did a tour of everything and went to Beaver Stadium,” Grimm said of the visit. “We did that whole thing, and went to the weight room, before watching them condition a little bit and stuff at the end.”

The 6-foot-6, 311-pound tackle was a multi-time visitor to the Nittany Lions' sideline this past fall, but is behind a host of tackles who have already received Penn State offers, including Red Bank Catholic's (N.J.) Quenton Nelson, Chancellor High's (Fredericksburg, Va.) Steven Moss, Montgomery Academy's (Nashville, Tenn.) Alex Bars, as well as newly offered (as of Saturday) Noah Beh from Scranton (Pa.) Prep.

“I think I might get an offer in the spring, but I don't really know when,” Grimm explained. “Coach Mac [McWhorter] did say that they're pretty sure that they're only taking one offensive lineman, so they don't know how many [recruits] they'll offer.”

Regardless, the junior liked what he heard from the Nittany Lion coaching staff, with whom he is more familiar than ever after Saturday. He also came away impressed with the Lasch Building facilities.

“I talked to Coach Mac, Coach [Charles] London, and Coach [Bill] O'Brien,” Grimm said. “Coach Mac said I am very high on their offensive line board in 2014, and we just talked about football in general. “The weight room stood out, too. The equipment was new, and it was high-tech and unlike anything I've ever seen.”
