Hill Still In Play For Penn State; Nordin FINALLY De-Commits

The Nittany Lions received some clarity on a pair of Michigan prospects who once seemed bound for Happy Valley.

A pair of Michigan prospects once committed to Penn State made announcements concerning their respective futures Wednesday.

The Nittany Lions are still in the hunt for Detroit Martin Luther King four-star CB Lavert Hill, who de-committed from PSU in November but made an official visit to the school earlier this month.

Hill took to Twitter Wednesday to say he has a final three of Michigan, Michigan State and Penn State, and will announce his final decision on National Signing Day (Feb. 3).

Most experts view this as a battle between the Wolverines and Spartans, but getting the January visit can only be viewed as a positive for the Lions.

“I want to thank all of the coaches that recruited me and gave me a chance to play football,” Hill tweeted. “But I’m down to three schools … Michigan, Michigan State and Penn State.”

Later in the day, the ongoing drama with Rockview, Mich., K Quinn Nordin and Penn State FINALLY came to an official end. Nordin committed to the Lions (via a video shot on a private jet) last summer, but by early October the proverbial writing was on the wall that he would probably never … um … actually land in Happy Valley.

That became crystal clear when Penn State received a commitment from Georgia kicker Alex Barbir Tuesday.

“I believe the best path for my future and career no longer exists at Penn State,” Nordin tweeted. “Therefore I’m de-committing.”

Nordin made an official visit to Michigan in mid-January and will be at USC this week.
