The recruitment of Sterling Jenkins


Penn Live has an interesting article posted about the recruitment of Sterling Jenkins to Penn State. Some interesting notes from the story. Neither one of Jenkins' parents are "sports people." Jenkins' old man said he didn't know Ohio State's Urban Meyer from the next man on the street. His parents said he never heard of James Franklin until Franklin showed up at Baldwin High School to recruit him. Jenkins was being recruited by Bill O'Brien's staff but only listened out of respect for his grandmother. Jenkins uncle, Chappie Hill, was one of the first African-American football players to play for Penn State in the 1950s. The article notes that Pitt's recruitment effort of Jenkins was very weak. It implies that they were relying on a hometown and family connections to seal the deal. Jenkins' Dad is a Pitt grad. Anyway from reading the article it seems like the Nittany Lions are getting not only a quality football player, but a level headed kid from a strong family. Would it be trolling to share this with Cardiac Hill? Note: There are links to Penn Live and Cardiac Hill in this fan post. I know some of you are reluctant to give any clicks to either institution.
