    Saturday

    Saturday Scout was on hand for the press conference of Michael Shaw, the 6-foot, 187-pund Ohio running back who selected PSU over Tennessee, Michigan and West Virginia. Although the commitment was not necessarily a shock, fans were pleased that it finally came to PSU.

    Quote Note: "And the fans at Penn State were also a huge factor. Being that supportive and loving Penn State football that much, I would just love to be a part of that."
