Penn State wins the Dailey Lottery

Penn State added to its list of commitments for the 2006 recruiting season with the addition of Andrew Dailey.

"Today was a great day because I committed to Penn State," Dailey said.

Dailey, the four-star linebacker prospect from Washington High School in Massillon, Ohio committed to the Nittany Lions after returning home from an unofficial visit to Happy Valley earlier this week. He first called Jay Paterno, who was recruiting Dailey, and then called Joe Paterno at his home.

"I'm excited," Dailey said. "I got home from my visit, I talked it over with my parents, and I realized that Penn State was where I wanted to be."

Dailey, who spent two days in State College, was hosted by junior quarterback Anthony Morelli. He is the first prospect from Ohio to commit to the Nittany Lions this season.

"I don't feel pressure being the first guy from Ohio," Dailey said. "A lot of people in Ohio have respect for Joe Paterno and he was one of the big reasons I committed. He was very excited when I told him I committed."

Dailey marks the tenth commitment for Penn State's class of 2006.
