Blessed & Honored: New York DT Lands Penn State Offer

We’re back with a Wednesday edition of the B&H.

NCAA Football: Penn State at Rutgers Noah K. Murray-USA TODAY Sports

Lions Offer Harrison-Hunte

New York City DT prospect Jared Harrison-Hunte made a visit to Penn State over the weekend, and left Happy Valley with an offer from the Nittany Lions. He also holds offers from Baylor, Boston College, LSU, Rutgers, and Syracuse, among others.

The 6-foot-4, 275-pound Harrison-Hunte is certainly a raw prospect judging by his junior year film, but also one with an enormous amount of potential as a defensive tackle. After taking three defensive tackle prospects in the 2017 class, Penn State can afford a player like Harrison-Hunte who may not project as an early contributor, but someone who could pay off three to four years down the line.

Penn State In Top 7 For Top Tight End

The Nittany Lions don’t seem to be pursuing many tight ends, but their top tight end prospect — Jahleel Billingsley — released his top seven which featured the Nittany Lions.

Billingsley currently has six predictions in on his 247Sports Crystal Ball — five for Ohio State, and one for Penn State — both of which could be the assumed favorites here. It still seems pretty far from a decision, but the Big Ten powers (and Michigan) seem like the top contenders.

Marquis Wilson Sets Announcement Date

Perhaps Penn State’s top cornerback target, Connecticut four-star Marquis Wilson announced Monday night that he would be making his commitment in the summer before his senior year.

Wilson’s Crystal Ball currently reads 100% Penn State, but he’s yet to see too many other schools outside of Happy Valley. Going to hit you with a “Uh, no duh” here, but those official visits elsewhere will be pretty crucial.
