Committany Nation (6.5.15): Zembeic to the Elite 11 Semis and More!

Let's make this a daily thing, why don't we.


Jake Zembiec to the Elite 11 Semi-Finals

Penn State commit, Jake Zembiec, will compete this weekend in the Elite 11 semi-finals in Los Angeles, California.

Zembiec will have to be at his best to make it to the finals out of this great group of quarterbacks. To tune in and watch Jake compete, all you have to do is visit Good luck, Jake!

Damar Hamlin Top 10

Central Catholic CB Damar Hamlin has officially named his top ten. It's a high profile list, featuring Penn State, Ohio State, Notre Dame, Clemson, Virginia Tech, Miami, Pitt, Michigan State, Auburn, and UCLA. Penn State doesn't sit in as strong of a position with Hamlin as they once did (which is okay, since they have commitments from Lavert Hill and Zechariah McPhearson), but they are still alive in the race. I believe that the Buckeyes lead, and would be surprised if he ended up anywhere else, but there is still a lot of time to go in his recruitment. Hold tight, Penn State fans, the Pittsburgh product still has lots of visits to take.

Highlights from The Opening: Columbus

In case you weren't able to catch the highlights from the Opening regional camp in Columbus, Ohio this past weekend, their twitter account was kind enough to release some of the video of running backs going one on one against the linebackers. The video features some of the top running backs in the country, including Penn State commit Miles Sanders, and Penn State target Khaleke Hudson (although they are targeting Hudson as a linebacker rather than a running back).

Josh Ball Set to Announce Today

Top247 offensive tackle, Josh Ball is set to announce his college decision today. He will decide between Florida State (heavy favorite), Penn State, Virginia Tech, Virginia, West Virginia and Auburn. Good luck, Josh!

Josh King Set to Announce Today (?)

DE Josh King was supposed to be announcing tomorrow, but apparently he's announcing today instead. The top contenders are Michigan State, Penn State, Notre Dame, Michigan and USC. I think King will pick Penn State in an upset over Michigan State, but that's just me.

Mike Panasiuk Ready to Announce?

According to this twitter post, DT Mike Panasiuk has a top three of Penn State, Michigan State (a brand new offer) and Wisconsin. We'll find out what that means soon, for the Opening invitee. I'm still leaning towards thinking Penn State has a good shot, but Michigan State looms. It appears that he will be announcing at 9:00AM this upcoming Monday.
