On Saturday, while Penn State is engaged in battle with Georgia for the TaxSlayer/Gator Bowl crown, four future Penn Staters will be testing their skills against many of the nation's top recruits in the Under Armour All-America game. This post will be used as an open thread of sorts for any positive things said about any of Penn State's four commits who will be playing, as well as any video highlights of them. If we miss anything, please feel free to drop it in the comments below.
Expect big things from the future Nittany Lions in this game, because all four of them, particularly Simmons, Menet and Sanders, have been outstanding all week in practice, and have earned high praise from just about every reporter/analyst there.
Penn State commits participating in the game:
-RB Miles Sanders
-WDE Shane Simmons
-OL Michal Menet (has been practicing mostly at OG, so expect to see him play there)
-DT Ellison Jordan
All four of the Penn State commits will be playing together on Team Armour (the team names for this game aren't nearly as fun as the team names for The Opening).
