Langley Strong at Camp

Penn State wastes no time offering Maryland defensive line prospect after he turns in a stellar effort at the school's camp. But where do the Nittany Lions rank with him? Check out our update for the latest.

Germantown, Md., defensive tackle Donald Langley added another offer to his ever-growing pile this weekend. The 6-foot-2.5, 288-pound product of Seneca Valley High already held 24 offers from schools such as Syracuse, Michigan State, Texas A&M, Rutgers, Ball State, Miami (Ohio), Maryland, Virginia, Rutgers, Toledo, Akron, UConn and Temple, among others.

“I just came back from camping at Penn State last weekend and they gave me a written scholarship offer,” Langley said.

Langley had been in contact with assistant coach Larry Johnson at Penn State for a few weeks and he invited him to camp at Penn State. The visit certainly paid off for Langley.

“I went in there and did what I normally do -- dominate,” Langley said. “I ran a 4.83 second 40-yard dash and ran a 4.07 on the pro agility drill. Penn State likes me as a defensive tackle but they also said that I am quick enough that I could move to defensive end possibly.”

In addition to Penn State, Langley also visited Maryland Tuesday.

“My visit to Maryland camp went really well,” Langley said. “I went up against the best offensive lineman in Maryland and I beat him three out of three times. I was just doing what I do again. Maryland's coaching staff said that they had ranked all of the players from the state of Maryland and D.C., and I was number seven on their list.”

Langley also named a leader for his services after the past few weeks.

“I am definitely very interested in Penn State,” Langley said. “They have been my dream school since I was in fifth grade so I was very happy with that offer.”

In addition to the 25 offers Langley currently holds, he is also getting interest from Oklahoma, Notre Dame and Tennessee.

“Oklahoma came to my school to see me. Notre Dame's Coach Voss has spoken to me quite a few times, and Coach Smith at Tennessee talks to me a good bit as well,” Langley said.

Langley is hoping to make his decision by the middle of football season.

“I am going to be graduating in December so I have to make my decision before that,” Langley said.

Langley starred last year for Seneca Valley with 46 tackles, 20 unassisted stops and four sacks Langley also dominated on the offensive line, leading the state of Maryland with 55 pancake blocks.
