PSU's Weekend Visitors

As the recruiting season winds down with three weekends left to host official visits before signing day, college coaches are cramming to bring prospects in for visits. Over the next few days, Penn State will host six definite visits, with one more being a possibility.

Elijah Fields, a standout 6-foot-2, 205-pound, safety/wide receiver from Duquesne, Pa., is slated to be on campus. Fields is listed as a four-star prospect by Scout.com and he has the Nittany Lions in his top four along with Pittsburgh, Ohio State and West Virginia.

Jeremiha Hunter is the surprise visitor this weekend. The 6-0, 200-pound, linebacker from Harrisburg, Pa., has been very quiet as to his intentions. Most feel that Hunter has enough speed and athleticism that he could play safety or hero in the Penn State defensive scheme. Hunter is a four-star prospect and is currently rated as the No. 18 linebacker in the nation by Scout.com

Abe Koroma was scheduled to visit University Park in December, but that visit didn't transpire so he will be there this weekend. The 6-2, 270-pound, defensive tackle is a three-star recruit from Milton S. Hershey High in Hershey, Pa., who has already committed to the Lions.

Aaron Maybin will take his official visit this weekend. The four-star defensive end from Mount Hebron High in Ellicott City, Md., has been instrumental in getting Maryland prospects to follow him to Penn State. Maybin, another Lion pledge, is ranked as the No. 26 defensive end in the nation.

Travis McBride played as good as anyone in Pennsylvania during the state playoffs, just prior to accepting a scholarship to Penn State. McBride is expected to play the hero spot for the Nittany Lions, although he could grow into a linebacker. It would not be surprising to eventually see him at tailback in a pinch. The three-star prospect from McKeesport, Pa., is very versatile and a needed addition for Penn State.

Evan Royster is a perfect fit for Penn State. The Lions need tailbacks and he is a very productive prospect. The three-star prospect from Westfield High in Chantilly, Va., ran for more that 6,300 yards during his high school career. He has yet to make up his mind.

Jack Corcoran is also scheduled to be in for an official visit. The New Jersey fullback has committed to Rutgers, but he still may visit this weekend.

These visit lists tend to change right up until the last minutes, so stay tuned to FightOnState.com for any updates.
