Wendy Laurent, Ladies and Gentlemen!
Home/HS: Princeton, NJ/The Hun School
Starz 'n Sheetz
Stars: 3* (247Sports, Scout), NR (Rivals)
Offer sheet: UMass, Navy, Buffalo, Delaware
Coach Mac McWhorter is wasting no time in trying to keep his offensive line as stocked as possible, as he extended an offer to Laurent in mid-January, prompting Laurent's visit the weekend of January 21. He doesn't have the offer sheet that most would prefer, but again, given the circumstances surrounding this year's recruitment, Laurent will be a great addition this late in the game.
Promised a look on either side of the ball, Laurent is being targeted for McWhorter's o-line (though, let's be honest, what LJ wants, LJ gets). He could go inside or outside at this point, but putting on some mass in a collegiate weight program is priority number one. At a listed 6'4", he really is a versatile lineman, sitting right on the cusp of a tall guard and a short tackle. Whether or not he actually stands that tall is another story.
As we've covered many times here, projecting linemen is the hardest thing to do when it comes to recruiting. So Laurent could end up being the next three-year starter for Penn State. Until he gets into camp and starts playing some smashmouth football with DaQuan Jones and others, we'll just have to say...Welcome to Penn State, Wendy!
