We break it down, and detail some visits, in Tuesday's Frankly Speaking.
Breaking Down Lonardo's Visit
Bethlehem (Pa.) Catholic has a pair of playmakers in the class of 2015, and though receiver Freddie Simmons has received much chatter to date, it was one of his teammates that made it to campus first.
Dante Lonardo is a 6-foot-4, 245 pound defensive end for Catholic, and visited Monday on the invite of Lions' defensive line coach Sean Spencer.
I'll have more on the visit Tuesday, but it appears the trend of every coach and available Lasch staffer greeting prospects in the lobby upon arrival will be a mainstay. Jake Cooper sid he experienced, as did Pittsburgh area tackle Tyler Hudanick, and Lonardo was welcome the same way.
Though Lonardo said it was a tad overwhelming, he called the greeting "really cool."
Penn State did not offer Lonardo, and he has yet to pick up his first offer, but is likely to visit again in the spring or early summer.

Junior Eyeing Return Trip
Cheshire (Conn.) Academy class of 2015 quarterback Patrick Kehoe was on campus for Junior Day Feb. 15, and now, the signal caller is planning a return trip.
"Me and [brother and junior tight end MJ] are going to Rutgers March 29th for their Junior Day and them I'm going to be going to be going back to Penn State on April 5 for spring practice," Kehoe wrote in a message.
