Joe Paterno indicated during a recent press conference that Penn State was not recruiting a quarterback this year.  McCollom, however, believes PSU offered him a scholarship following his performance at Penn State's summer camp.  He has not yet received an offer in writing from the Nittany Lions.

"They've offered, but I haven't received anything in the mail yet," Eric said.  "They've sent letters and I've called up there a couple of times.  I just called and talked to Coach Kenney a couple of weeks ago, we really didn't talk much about football."

Eric does not have any other scholarship offers at this time.  He has already taken trips to Penn State, Clemson, South Carolina and Tennessee.  He plans to schedule some other visits shortly.

"I haven't planned any visits yet, but I'm going to sit down with my coach next week and see what we can get planned out."

He is hearing from "Clemson, South Carolina, Maryland, Penn State, Tennessee, Wake Forest and Georgia Tech."

"I really don't have a favorite right now.  I only have one offer, so I can't really know who my favorite is right now."

Eric will be starting his second year as quarterback at Camden this year and will undoubtedly garner the attention of many college coaching staffs.
