Sukay Talks About Nittany Lions

With 29 receptions totaling 660 yards and eight touchdowns this past season, Nick Sukay has been receiving a lot of interest from a wide array of program already. Fight On State caught up with Sukay Saturday at the Scout Combine to discuss his thoughts on Penn State and where the Nittany Lions stand on his early list of favorties.

PITTSBURGH -- Nick Sukay's stock has grown almost as fast as he has.

A nearly 6-foot-3, 200-pound junior from Greensburg (Pa.) Central Catholic High School, Sukay helped the Centurions reach the WPIAL Class AA title game last fall and is a key reason they're a favorite to win in 2006.

After that, Sukay's a certainty to play somewhere at a Division I-A school, and Penn State is among his favorites. Sukay spoke to before working out at the Combine Saturday at the UPMC Sports Complex.

"I've talked to Tom Bradley from Penn State quite a bit, and I'm going to their junior day March 25," Sukay said. "He said they're very interested and he knows what they're going to do, but he just can't say when. Whatever that means. But I like Penn State a lot and wouldn't mind going there."

Along with the Nittany Lions, Sukay has gotten interest from Ohio State, Notre Dame and Michigan. Pitt, West Virginia, Indiana, Kentucky and Georgia Tech already have offered him a scholarship to play for them. Penn State could make him an offer when he visits in three weeks.

Sukay noted that the Nittany Lions, West Virginia, Ohio State and Pitt probably are his favorites, and he really enjoyed the PSU-Ohio State game last fall.

"It was a crazy atmosphere," Sukay said. "I'd love to play in a stadium like that in front of all those fans. That would be a great time."

And in the next few weeks, Sukay should find out if the Nittany Lions would love to have him play there just as much.
