Recruiting Report: PSU's Offer Board

The Penn State staff has had the opportunity recently to go more in-depth with its evaluations of several prospects, resulting in a PSU offer in some cases. See the Nittany Lions' offer board and which regions the coaches are focusing on currently.

State of Affairs

With over 30 offers extended, the Penn State coaches are pursuing prospects from Michigan to North Carolina. In fact, only about 21 percent of their offers have gone to Pensylvanian prospects. If you add in other traditional recruiting areas like New Jersey, New York, Delaware, Maryland, Washington, D.C. and Virginia, that number increases to about 62 percent of the total current offers.

Here is a state-by-state breakdown of the offer board:

Pennsylvania: 7
North Carolina: 5
Michigan: 4
New Jersey: 4
Maryland: 2
New York: 2
Ohio: 2
Virginia: 2
Delaware: 2
Washington, D.C.: 2
Alabama: 1

Decisions Made

Of the 34 known prospects with Penn State offers nearly 16 percent (five) have made pledges to a program, with one (Chris Colasanti) selecting Penn State.

The players with Penn State offers who have made their commitments so far are:

Chris Colasanti: Penn State
Sidell Corley: Florida
Broderick Green: USC
