Ellison Jordan headed to the Under Armour All-America Game
The four-star Penn State defensive tackle commit will join the rest of the country's elite players in the high school all-star game. He will join future teammates DE Shane Simmons, OL Michal Menet and RB Miles Sanders at the game. You can bet with those four, there will be some serious Penn State recruiting going on among the players. One player they'll likely zone in on is DC linebacker, Aaron Hansford.
Jake Zembiec in the spotlight
In the continuing series of Scout's "In the Spotlight" videos, we find Penn State commit Jake Zembiec.
Miles Sanders' new highlight tape is the stuff of legend
The four-star running back commit who is arguably the top running back in the 2016 class, released his new senior season highlight tape, and oh boy. Grab the popcorn for this one.
Khaleke Hudson has no Interest in Being Tackled
Some Penn State fans have forgotten about Khaleke Hudson as the 2016 recruiting class has dragged on, but the Pittsburgh-native is still out there, and becoming more and more of a possibility for Penn State every day.
What's not possible however, is poor No. 25 being able to tackle Khaleke on this play.
Hudson also picked up an offer from Michigan recently, so the Wolverines could be a team to watch here.
Brendan Ferns to take all of his officials?
According to Steve Wiltfong of 247Sports, four-star ILB Brendan Ferns is going to take all of his official visits after the season. The race for Ferns has long been seen as a showdown between West Virginia and Penn State. However, Wiltfong goes on to list USC and Ole Miss as possible visits. I would still guess Ferns ends up in Morgantown, but it appears this one is not over yet.
