New Jersey Defensive Tackle Deciding This Week
Four-star Tyler Friday is ready to end his recruitment, according to 247Sports. Friday is having a video being made, and will be choosing from Ohio State, Michigan, and Alabama, meaning the potential Penn State visit never came to fruition.
While another defensive tackle wasn’t an absolute need for the Nittany Lions, we’ve seen with James Franklin’s staff that they like to over-recruit along the lines, giving some credence that Penn State would push hard for Friday. In the end though, it looks like Penn State will spend its resources elsewhere.
Ohio State Official Visit Set For Walker
Four-star OT Rasheed Walker announced on twitter Tuesday that he’ll be officially visiting Columbus the weekend of January 20th.

Walker also announced that he wouldn’t be committing to a school until National Signing Day.
At the risk of repeating myself, Walker is down to Penn State, Ohio State, and Virginia Tech, but the choice will almost certainly be the Nittany Lions or the Buckeyes. Penn State is believed to be a slight leader here right now, but many recruitniks believe that Ohio State will take the lead following his official visit on January 20th. Both James Franklin and Urban Meyer have yet to go in-home with Walker, so this recruitment will come down to the bitter end.
2019 Rhode Island OT Lands Two Big Offers
Xavier Truss, who Penn State offered after his performance at the US Army National Combine, picked up offers from Michigan and Oregon in the last couple days.

The Nittany Lions still own all six of his predictions on 247’s Crystal Ball, but Truss’ recruitment is just getting started. Now that the word is out on him, I would expect some of the big boys from the SEC to come calling.
