While Marks is staying mum on the winner of the battle — his high school coach told the Bloomsburg Press Enterprise he doesn't even know where his star is going — all signs point to him becoming the second member of the Nittany Lions' Class of 2007.
Marks made a visit to Penn State earlier this week, during which time he toured campus, went fishing with PSU recruiting coordinator Mike McQueary and met face-to-face with Nittany Lion head coach Joe Paterno.
He was scheduled to visit Pitt in the near future, but called the Panther staff to cancel that trip.
Offensive line is a focal point for the Penn State staff with its upcoming class. And Marks, a four-star prospect as rated by Scout.com, may be the best in the state. The most recent visit to Happy Valley was the latest in a series of trips, which included the Blue-White Game, a late-winter junior day and several home games last season.
Stay tuned for more on Marks.
