Oweh Takes In Happy Valley

Four-Star defensive end was back at Penn State this weekend for his official visit. From the looks of it, it seems as though the Nittany Lions made quite the final impression on the New Jersey athlete.

This was Oweh’s fifth visit to Penn State so it’s safe to say he’s pretty comfortable with the program. He also has some strong personal ties to the Nittany Lions as his high school coach, Jim Saylor, played football with James Franklin at East Stroudsburg.

While Oweh still has official visits planned to Michigan (November 25th) and Notre Dame (December 8th), this one will still likely come down to the same two teams who have been leading for Oweh since the spring — Penn State or Ohio State. Personally, I could see either school being Oweh’s choice. Obviously, the Nittany Lions are feeling very good right after the visit, but Oweh has shown to be a pretty impressionable kid. We’ll see where things stand once the post-visit high wears off.

Enis Wraps Up Penn State Visit

Penn State legacy Solomon Enis made the trek from sunny Arizona to cold State College, but despite the dreary weather, the Nittany Lions made some moves with Enis.

It still remains to be seen if Penn State will have room for Enis, but as I said last week, I don’t think the staff would have hosted a legacy recruit for an official visit if there wasn’t at least a decent chance he’d eventually get the green light. It probably won’t be before the new year, which fortunately for Penn State, gels with Enis’ timeline. He’ll visit Arizona State on December 8th, and then plans on making a visit to USC in January, so the Nittany Lions will have some time to figure things out.

Quick Hitters

  • Harrisburg was upset in the PIAA playoffs meaning that Micah Parsons’ season is over. He’ll now have a chance to take his final two official visits, one of which should be Penn State.
  • Nick Tarburton was suspended as Pennridge’s season ended against Garnet Valley. It remains to be seen if this will have any effect on Tarburton’s status in Penn State’s class, but it’s certainly not a good look for the 2018 linebacker prospect.
