<b>SAN ANTONIO -</b> As the events surrounding the U.S. Army All-American Bowl take place this week, the Scout.com network has full exclusive access to all of them.

Bob Lichtenfels: How was your trip to San Antonio?

Justin King: We had a great trip down. It is very nice here.

BL: Did you fly straight down from Pittsburgh?

JK: We started in Pittsburgh, and then we went to Atlanta, then here.

BL: Since you follow recruiting yourself, how does it feel to be around all these talented players?

JK: It's cool, I mean when you read about them you feel like you already know them.

BL: Are you out to show people what you can do, or are you just out to have fun here?

JK: I want to see what everyone here has, and show what I can do.

BL: How is recruiting going for Penn State?

JK: It is going very good, people are starting to realize what is going on and they want to be a part of that.

BL: Yourself and Derrick Williams have become ambassadors for Penn State as of late. You both have taken a very active role in the recruiting of other athletes; can you share with us a few names of some recruits you guys have been working on?

JK: People who are looking at Penn State, they come to us. Player's want to know how we feel about whats going on there. We are trying to get Brian Cushing, Reggie Smith, and Melvin Alaeze.

BL: So, this is going to be a recruiting trip?

JK: Oh, yeah!

BL: What are your expectations coming in as freshman at Penn State?

JK: I just want to contribute, and make a name for myself.

BL: Where would you rank Penn State's class so far?

JK: I think it will be very good; I am not sure where I would rank it.
