About a week after getting their first verbal commitment for the class of 2012, Penn State has just landed their second commit in the form of Massachusetts linebacker Camren Williams. Williams is currently on the Penn State campus as part of a large contingent of juniors the Nittany Lion coaching staff is hosting on unofficial visits this weekend. Let's hope whatever Williams is feeling tonight is contagious. Williams' teammate, wide receiver Armani Reeves, is also being pursued by Penn State and is also on campus.
Williams stands 6'2" and weighs 200 lbs. Scout rates Williams a three star prospect while Rivals is more generous in giving him four stars. Either way, his offer list is an impressively long one with Boston College, UConn, Maryland, Michigan, Missouri, North Carolina, Virginia, and Wake Forest.
Penn State has a good young stable of linebackers, but they could always use more. Nathan Stupar is the only linebacker with senior eligibility this year, but Michael Mauti, Mike Yancich, and Gerald Hodges only have two years left. Williams might be the only linebacker Penn State takes this year. I'd say no more than two.
Here's what you won.
