Maryland ’17 LB Welcomes PSU Interest

The Nittany Lions are in the early stages of recruiting junior-to-be Jordan Anthony.

Our Lady Good Counsel (Md.) junior-to-be Jordan Anthony has received eight offers, but not one from Penn State. However, the linebacker told FOS he likes the Nittany Lions.

"An offer from Penn State would mean a lot, considering I had an uncle who graduated from there a few years ago and a cousin who is there now,” he said. “If I were to receive an offer from PSU, I am sure Britni De Castro (his cousin) will do her best to persuade me to Penn State."

The three-star OLB mentioned his conversations with two PSU staff members.

"Coach Charles Huff has come by my school a couple of times and I've met Coach Brent Pry,” he said. “I was told they were recruiting me hard and could see me as hybrid type linebacker in their defensive schemes.”

Anthony said he doesn't know much about the current staff's defensive system, but knew about PSU's reputation for strong defenses under Joe Paterno.

The 6-foot-1, 210-pounder said he doesn't have any visits planned for PSU, but did say he would like to head to Penn State for the "Lasch Bash" this summer.

He mentioned that a previous visit was great.

"I've been to PSU for a camp,” he said. “I was impressed with everything, to be honest. Penn State is one of the best programs in the country, so it's hard not to be impressed."

The linebacker tells FOS that Auburn and Clemson are recruiting him the hardest. He also mentioned that he is open to anyone and currently has no top five.

He reports that other schools that have offered include Big Ten programs Michigan, Maryland and Iowa.

Anthony wants to make his college decision at the end of his junior year.
