OL Will Visit 3 For Sure

Dan Pribula, a huge offensive tackle from Strongsville, Ohio, has over a dozen scholarship offers. He has family ties to Penn State. How interested is he in Penn State and how interested is the Nittany Lion coaching staff in him?

Name: Dan Pribula
Position: OL
Height: 6'6"
Weight: 320 pounds
40-yard dash: 5.1
Max Bench Press: 340 pounds
School: Strongsville High School, Strongsville, OH

Although Dan does not yet have a scholarship offer from Penn State, he still considers the Nittany Lions one of his favorite teams.  He is currently scheduled to take an official visit to Penn State on January 24.

He will also take official visits to Notre Dame and Syracuse.  Those two, along with over a dozen other schools, have offered Pribula a scholarship.

"I've been trying to get a hold of Notre Dame," Dan said.  "I called like 4 times.  I want to set one up there for the week before [the Penn State visit].  They said (in a letter) that weekend was available, but I haven't gotten a hold of them.

"I have one set up to Syracuse this weekend."

Dan believes he will take all 5 of his official visits, but does not yet know which schools he will visit with his last 2 visits.

"I don't have any idea yet.  Those schools have been the ones recruiting me the heaviest.  I've told a lot of other schools 'no'."

Dan's father graduated from Penn State and is a big Nittany Lion fan.  Dan visited Penn State for a recruiting day in July, but did not attend a game at Beaver Stadium this year.  He has attended Penn State football games in the past.

"It's a good program and the school's beautiful.  I've been there a lot so I know the campus."

Jay Paterno is recruiting Dan for Penn State and keeps in regular contact.

Dan attended the Ohio State/Michigan game this year and is still considering the Buckeyes as well.
