At least one visitor was impressed this weekend as New Jersey linebacker Glenn Carson committed to Penn State while on his official visit.
Glenn Carson is headed to Penn State University to play football.
The Southern Regional High School senior linebacker and running back verbally committed to the school this weekend.
The 6-foot-3, 225-pound Carson is one of the state’s top college prospects. He had 19 scholarship offers and made official visits this fall to Notre Dame, Boston College and Penn State.
Rutgers, Stanford, Virginia and Syracuse also heavily recruited Carson.
Hooray! Another flesh eating white linebacker!
As you can see from the article, Carson had a very impressive offer list. It had long been rumored that it was a two way battle between Rutgers and Penn State with Notre Dame making a late push. I guess Rutgers must have cooled on him. Afterall, we only get their leftovers.
Carson is our 16th verbal commitment and first linebacker. I think we'll still take one more linebacker in this class before we're done. Jelani Jenkins, come on down!
Welcome to Penn State, Glenn. WE ARE!
UPDATE: Digital Sports has more with quotes.
"I was kind of sure about two or three weeks ago, but I wanted to see Boston College to make sure that Penn State was the right choice,'' Carson said. "Overall I just felt that Penn State was the better school for me and if I could be in the best place.
"It's just been going through my mind for a long time now, doing the pros and cons for a while. The visit was the deciding factor, everything went as good as I thought it would.''
