Recruiting Chat Recap

Find out what happened in Sunday night's only true Penn State recruiting chat, hosted by Cory James. Cory and members discussed PSU prospects like Anthony LaLota, Darrell Givens, Malcolm Willis, Carlo Calabrese and Brian Fields, among others. Catch up on their recruiting right here.

Catch up the recruitment of several key prospects for Penn State, as the Nittany Lions hosted another Junior Day event this past weekend.

Anthony LaLota: LaLota was not able to make it up for PSU's Junior Day on Saturday. His dad was sick, so he just couldn't make the trip. LaLota hopes he will make up for the missed trip to Penn State soon, however, he already has plans to go to Virginia and Rutgers for their spring games over the next two weekends. So, it looks like a PSU visit will be sometime after that.

Darrell Givens & Malcolm Willis: Lackey High School teammates Darrell Givens and Malcolm Willis made it up for PSU's Junior Day and had a great time. They knew A.J. Wallace before from his days playing at McDonough, so they hung around with him most of the time. They were both really impressed by what they saw and said that Penn State has moved up their lists a lot.

Carlo Calabrese: Calabrese came away from the Junior Day without a PSU offer. He came to PSU on Friday to check out the academics and talk to the weight training coaches. He then ran through Junior Day on Saturday which also included those two aspects of the program, among many others. Calabrese is a little disappointed he has not received an offer yet from Penn State, but he said they are still up there. I did get the impression that PSU was falling quickly with Calabrese though with their lack of an offer and other schools offering and coming after him hard from the beginning.

Brian Fields: Fields was up at Penn State this weekend, but he also left without an offer. Fields indicated that he had a great time at Penn State and he wants to stay close to home. Apparently, Fields believes the holdup on schools offering him is his lack of a legit 40 time. Fields has run the 40 at his high school, but that is not an official time. His running last year at Penn State was scratched due to an ankle injury. He believes he can run in the 4.4-second range, but that remains to be seen.

Jordan Love: Love was on his way back from Louisville where he was visiting the Cards. It didn't sound like the trip was anything special. Love wants to make his decision before his season starts, and he will be taking more visits, but none scheduled at this point.

C.J. Crawford: Crawford was unable to make the trip to PSU as well this weekend. He did say that Penn State is still in contact with him and recruiting him as a quarterback. Crawford said that Penn State has told him that they want two quarterbacks in this class, one pocket passer and one dual threat. Crawford fits the dual threat mold, but does not have a PSU offer yet. Crawford will be coming to PSU next month for the Nike Camp in Happy Valley.
