Angeline Talks Penn State Offer

The Exton (Pa.) Downingtown East sophomore tight end is up to four offers after a visit to University Park last weekend.

Cary Angeline came to University Park last Saturday with three offers. He left with four.

Penn State has been conservative when evaluating and offering class of 2016 prospects. Just a handful of legitimate offers are out, but the 6-foot-6, 226 pound Exton (Pa.) Downingtown East tight end now has one of them.

"It was awesome," Angeline said. "When we first got there, I was hoping for an offer. We watched practice, and the tight ends got the ball a lot, like every other play, which was awesome.

"Then, we went and took a campus tour, and after that, I got called up to [head] Coach [James] Franklin's office. He said he liked the numbers I got weighed at, so they decided to offer."

Angeline was an All-Ches-Mont League National Conference first-team pick by The Philadelphia Inquirer following a sophomore season that saw him rack up 35 catches for 460 yards and six touchdowns. He said Penn State's energetic coaching staff stood out.

"The coaches, all of them are high energy," Angeline said. "It was awesome, and they all seem like very good coaches.

"I mainly talked to [receivers] Coach [Josh] Gattis. He's also very high energy and a young coach, but he seems like a good coach."

The sophomore has no other visits planned with the spring kicking into gear, but said he may add some in the future.
