Less than two weeks remain until kickoff in the Emerald Isle, and that means it's true freshman Saeed Blacknall until Penn State football!
Lucky Number 13 was one of, if not the, biggest recruiting coups for James Franklin and staff in the few short weeks between his hiring and signing day in February. Blacknall, a consensus four star receiving prospect from the Great State of New Jersey, was a verbal commitment to Big Ten Powerhouse Rutgers . . . until Franklin got a hold of him. Blacknall is almost guaranteed to play a some type of role in the Nittany Lions opportunity to replace Allen Robinson's record setting production.
