Three More Confirmed for Georgia State

While we already know that five-star Micah Parsons will be back in Beaver Stadium this Saturday night, the Nittany Lions will be hosting a whole crop other recruits for its primetime showdown with Georgia State.

2019 DT Steven Faucheux (via Lions247)

Faucheux is fo’ sho’ (I’m sorry) not a stranger to Happy Valley, having already visited twice in the past year. He’s still without an Ohio State offer, but the Ohio big man has quite the list, boasting offers from Alabama, Florida, Kentucky, Pitt, and Tennessee.

2019 ATH John Metchie (via LandOf10)

A friend and fellow Canadian like 2018 commit Jesse Luketa, Metchie earned his Penn State offer during the Lasch Bash weekend. Now, he’ll return to campus for the first time with an offer in hand. Would not be surprised if he becomes No. 2 for the 2019 class.

2019 DT Antonio Alfano (via Lions247)

Update Thursday at 12 p.m.: New Jersey five-star Antonio Alfano will be back on campus again, his first visit since transferring to Rahway High School. We’ll see how his recruitment shakes out now that he’s at a new high school, but Penn State was one of, if not the, leader for Alfano.

2020 RB Chris Tyree (via Lions247)

The top running back and No. 4 overall prospect in the 2020 class, Virginia’s Chris Tyree is back in Happy Valley for the first time since landing an offer in early June. It’s still stupid early, but Penn State has positioned themselves well with the high school sophomore.

2019 Iowa QB Likes Penn State

It’s a paywall article from Ryan Snyder of BWI, but Iowa QB Max Duggan talks about his interest in the Nittany Lions. It’s not very often Penn State ventures to Iowa for recruits, but it takes one look at Duggan’s film, and it’s clear to see his fit in the offense.

North Carolina’s Garrett Shrader is still probably No. 1 on Penn State’s QB board, but Duggan is a heck of a prospect. Compact delivery and release. Natural athlete that shows great balance and awareness. His arm strength may hold him back a little bit, but there’s a lot to like about Duggan.

Plus, he’s a red head. And you know what that means?
