Offered Lineman Headlines Stetson Camp

Penn State's second satellite camp stop comes Wednesday in Florida. An offered lineman plus a few prospects seeking one will be in attendance.

Parker Boudreaux lives just 30 minutes from Stetson University. Penn State, on the other hand, is a bit farther from his home.

The Orlando, Fla., Bishop Moore 6-foot-4, 267 pound Class of 2016 tackle has narrowed the distance gap since Penn State offered him April 29 by communicating frequently via social media with offensive line coach Herb Hand. Wednesday, the gap will be eliminated, if just for a day.

Boudreaux will camp at Stetson, and the Nittany Lions staff will work the event. It's an opportunity that excites the sophomore.

"Coach Hand told me that their entire staff is going to Stetson, and I thought that was really cool," Boudreaux said. "I want to see how Coach Hand and everybody teaches, and meet all the staff."

Penn State invited the lineman to its own camp at University Park, but the trip to Stetson was just too easy to pass up. The way Boudreaux sees it, he can get all the work with the staff he desires at the small university.

He has in mind just exactly what he wants to show them during it, too. Much of it was learned under the direction of Tom Shaw, who trains Boudreaux. If the name sounds familiar, it's because he also trained former Nittany Lions Tim Shaw, Levi Brown, Anwar Phillips and Tony Hunt as they were preparing for the NFL Draft.

"I want to show my good footwork, my speed and good technique," Boudreaux said. "All [Hand] saw was me about two times, so he hasn't seen me actually do anything."

What Hand hasn't seen is mitigated by what the sophomore knows about Penn State. His knowledge is plentiful — on the field and off — about the Lions.

"I learned that there are great people there. It's an awesome school, and everybody that plays football there graduates. It has great facilities."

"I learned that there are great people there," he said. "It's an awesome school, and everybody that plays football there graduates. It has great facilities.

"I didn't know they had almost the biggest stadium in college football; that's awesome. The all whiteout game looks sick, and I want to visit for that game."

First, he'll visit Stetson.

Stetson Camp: Names to Know

Penn State's second of two stops out of state for satellite camps brings it to Stetson. The event will be a bit light, as Florida and Florida States are both holding camps Wednesday.

Nonetheless, some early names to watch already dot the list of expected attendees.

Jonathan Pollock

Tale of the Tape: 5-foot-11, 210 pound

The Skinny: The Orlando Dr. Phillips High outside linebacker is committed to Mississippi State, but a host of teams are still pursuing him. That list is likely to grow, and could include Penn State down the road. Pollock will travel to Stetson with Boudreaux. The sophomore already holds 10 offers.

Trey Sneed

Tale of the Tape: 5-11, 185 pounds

The Skinny: A running back from Orange Park, Fla., Fleming Island, Sneed visited Penn State March 24. Afterward, he said Penn State has always been "one of my dream programs" and has kept in touch with Huff. The speedster will camp with hopes of gaining an offer.

Bo Alexander

Tale of the Tape: 6-5, 280 pounds

The Skinny: The Winter Springs, Fla., junior offensive lineman is the epitome of why Penn State is making a pair of stops outside the region: he's under the radar, but intriguing. The Nittany Lions' linemen board can be considered set in terms of order and preference, but if things fall through and Alexander camps well, he could be a name to watch down the road.
