Penn State Already In The Mix For Ohio Class of 2019 DB

The son of a former NFL standout, Moses Douglass recently visited the Nittany Lions. How did it go?

Springfield, Ohio, Class of 2019 defensive back Moses Douglass will only be entering his sophomore season next fall. But he is already being heavily recruited. 

The 6-foot, 170-pounder recently took a visit to Penn State and liked what he saw.

The visit was amazing,” Douglass said. “I was really shocked by Penn State. The stadium, facility upgrades and the campus really shocked me. I really like how the campus is set up. I could see myself playing at PSU one day.

 "The coaches were saying things about getting Penn State back up to one of the top football teams in the country,” he added.

Douglass said he has yet to receive an offer from the Lions but…

"I think an offer is coming my way,” he reported. “The staff has hinted (at it)."

Douglass hopes to get back to Happy Valley for a game in the fall. Before then, he plans to check out Kentucky this month and Iowa in July. The Wildcats and Hawkeyes have both offered.

As an aside, Douglass’ father, Maurice, was a DB at Kentucky in the mid-1980s before enjoying a long NFL career with the Chicago Bears (1986-94) and New York Giants (1995-96). The elder Douglass is now the head coach at Springfield High. 

The younger Douglass said Kentucky and Iowa are recruiting him the hardest at this point. But are any schools standing out to him?

"Iowa, Penn State and Kentucky are my favorites,” he said. “I really like Penn State."
