The term 'recruiting race' takes on a whole new meaning when you toss in the weather and have to outrace a potential storm. That is just what the Nittany Lions are trying to do this weekend though as they work to wrap up this year's recruiting class.
To start off, the Penn State staff is reportedly expecting a smaller group of recruits than last weekend, but given the potential for snow it remains uncertain just how small that number will be at this stage.
Among the visitors expected is Daryll Clark, the 6'3", 195 lb., 4.65/40 quarterback from Youngstown (Ursuline), OH. Daryll originally committed to the Nittany Lions last year and spent this past season at Kiski Prep. He reaffirmed his choice to become a Nittany Lion on December 12, 2004.
Among the other prospects expected to visit this weekend are:
On an interesting sidenote, as we understand it, Penn State has also been in contact with North Babylon, N.Y., runnning back Jason Gwaltney about setting up an unoffcial visit for this weekend.
Gwaltney has indicated he is down to USC and Ohio State. No word yet on whether Gwaltney will make the trip, but we'll have details as they become available.
