The dead period is over, which means coaches are back on the road finishing up the 2017 recruiting class.

Mark Webb Schedules Penn State Official Visit

The Nittany Lions might already have three wide receivers committed in the class, but that hasn’t stopped the staff from still pursuing Pennsylvania four-star Mark Webb. According to an article ($) from Adam Friedman of Rivals, the Georgia commit will take an official visit to Happy Valley before National Signing Day. The article itself is premium info, but with Webb scheduled to visit Georgia this weekend, that would mean his Penn State visit will come either January 20 or January 27.

It remains to be seen if his cousin and fellow Georgia commit, running back D’Andre Swift, will make the visit to Penn State with him.

Former Ohio State Commit Lands Penn State Offer

Nevada’s No. 1 overall prospect and the No. 6 ranked wide receiver in the nation, Tyjon Lindsey, decommitted from Ohio State yesterday, and quickly was offered by Josh Gattis.

With Nebraska looking like the favorite to earn Lindsey’s signature, this offer probably won’t amount to much, but it’s something to watch nonetheless. Apparently Lindsey doesn’t want to play his college ball on the west coast, so if he’s open to taking multiple official visits, the Nittany Lions could just luck their way into one.

Tariq Castro-Fields Set To Officially Visit Happy Valley This Weekend

In the Committany Nation earlier this week, I mistakenly said that Tariq Castro-Fields and Nathan Proctor where set to be on campus this weekend. I was wrong on that info, as only Castro-Fields will be in Happy Valley. Proctor will be visiting Pitt, though he should eventually make his way to Penn State sometime in the next two weeks.

As for Castro-Fields, he appears to be Penn State’s No. 1 realistic target at this point. At 6-foot-1, he has the versatility to play either cornerback or safety, so he’d be a really big coup for the Nittany Lions. Maryland and Alabama are the other two favorites, with the Terrapins being the probable leaders. But with Penn State getting the last visit before Castro-Fields make his announcement on January 23, the Nittany Lions certainly have a legitimate shot.
