Isheem Young Sets Decision Date

Four-star Philadelphia safety Isheem Young announced the six schools he’ll be deciding from on July 18.

Young has long been a Penn State lean, and after being back in Happy Valley again this past weekend for a 7-on-7 tournament, nothing has changed to make anyone think Young won’t end up in the Blue and White.

Fields Saga Continues

(Editor’s Note: It’s highly, highly, highly, highly unlikely that Fields circles back around to Penn State)

Is Justin Fields still considering Penn State? Depends who you ask. Zach Abolverdi of SEC Country had an interview with Fields this weekend where the Georgia quarterback doesn’t mention Penn State. Meanwhile, Steve Wiltfong of 247Spots also interviewed Fields this weekend ($), and Penn State was the first school Fields mentioned.

Micah Parsons Leads Harrisburg To 7-on-7 Championship

Micah Parsons did what Micah Parsons does — dominate. The five-star, who lined up at wide receiver, linebacker, and cornerback, led his Harrisburg squad to victory at Penn State’s 7-on-7 tournament.

Tyler Donahue of LandOf10.com was on the ground for the tournament, and has much more insight here.

Rundown: 2019 & 2020 Offers

  • 2019 CB Keaton Ellis (State College, PA): Ellis already boasts offers from Syracuse and Buffalo, but he became the first State College High prospect since Alex Kenney to land an offer from Penn State. It’s still early, but one would think the Nittany Lions sit well for a State College resident.
  • 2019 RB Keilan Robinson (Washington DC): Penn State joined Maryland, Michigan State, North Carolina, and Rutgers in offering the 5-foot-9, 175 pound running back. Despite his small stature, Robinson profiles similarly to 2018 commit Ricky Slade.
  • 2020 WR Julian Fleming (Catawissa, PA): 2020 is so far away it’s sometimes not even worth mentioning, but this kid is an absolute stud. He might be the best wide receiver in the state right now. No surprise that Penn State offered here. Very good chance he’s at minimum a Top 100 overall prospect come 2020.
