Enis had this to say to Scout West Coast Recruiting Analyst Blair Angulo about Penn State after a visit in late April:

"We talked about what my role would be, and it sounds like I would be playing the boundary so I can go up and get the ball," Enis said. "They've also talked to me about being the field guy that can catch, turn up and run. Just watching film with coach (Josh) Gattis, what they're doing over there is amazing. They're putting their guys in the best possible situations to make plays happen for the offense."

George unofficially visited Penn State on Feb. 12. George spoke to Scout Regional Recruiting Analyst Michael Clark about why Penn State stands out to him:

"Coach Gattis and I really hit it off when we first started communicating, and our bond has just gotten better and better over time," he said. "I've had a couple of talks with coach (James) Franklin, so I know if I go there, I'm set. There is nothing I really have to worry about. When I took my visit, it really felt like home. It felt good."
