Jersey TE Catches a Penn State Offer

Penn State recently received a commitment from one prospect who attended its summer camp. Most thought Abe Koroma was offered at camp, but as it turned out he was offered before camp started. The Nittany Lions did offer a tight end from the Garden State after a strong camp showing, though, and if things fall into place he could be the next commitment.

Montvale (N.J.) St. Joseph’s tight end Doug Klopacz (6-3, 260, 4.75) recently received a written offer from Penn State. Klopacz attended camp at University Park, where he impressed the Nittany Lion coaching staff.  

“They just offered me last Tuesday,” Klopacz said. “I went to camp and did very well. My times were all good and I did well in my testing. I did well in all the drills.”  

Klopacz could be a tight end or an offensive lineman, but he admittedly doesn’t know where he’ll play if he chooses Penn State.

“They just said if I come there it would be as an athlete, and they would figure out where I would best fit on the team.”  

The Nittany Lions were the first to offer Klopacz, although he is receiving interest from Boston College, Maryland, Virginia, Rutgers and Kansas. With one offer and the season close to beginning is a commitment eminent?  

“I’m going to discuss it with my family and we’ll make a decision, I’m not sure exactly when it will be.”  

Klopacz has taken unofficial visits to Maryland and Rutgers.  

Maryland: “I went there with my father and my grandfather, it was nice. I really like the whole set-up they have there.”

Rutgers: “I like there facilities there.”

The Garden State tight end is hopeful of getting a closer look at Penn State in the near future.

“That’s definitely something I need to do, is take a better look at them and see things I haven’t gotten a chance to look at.”
