Update: PSU's Offer Board

Penn State's Offer Board has seen more shifts lately with more pledges making commitments to programs, including the Nittany Lions, like Ako Poti. With LOI Day quikly approaching, see the current state of PSU's Offer Board, commitments off the list and a state-by-state breakdown of the Class of 2007's offers and commitments.

State of Affairs

With around 12 known offers extended to undecided prospects, the Penn State coaches are continuing to pursue prospects from California to North Carolina. In fact, only about 17 percent of their offers have gone to Pennsylvanian prospects, although just about 40 percent of their commitments currently hail from the Keystone State. If you add in other traditional recruiting areas like New Jersey, New York, Delaware, Maryland, Washington, D.C. and Virginia, that number increases to over 60 percent of the total current commitments.
