Now, we take a closer look at how Penn State's home turf breaks down, reviewing the Class of 2006 distributions for the Keystone State.
Here is a map of how the PIAA districts are split:
Here are the top districts for Pennsylvania this year:
1. District 7 (WPIAL): 28 recruits
2. District 1: 14 recruits
3. District 3: 13 recruits
4. District 12 (Philadelphia): 6 recruits
This year the eastern half of Pennsylvania surpassed the western half, with 37 total D-1A recruits from the eastern districts compared to 34 from the western districts. In the past the westenrn region has produced more D-1A talent on a fairly consistent basis.
With the lists of recruits we are seeing already for the 2007 recruiting season, it should be an interesting race for the top spot in recruiting circles for the Class of 2007.
