Blessed & Honored: Blue-White Weekend Visitors

You are going to need to sit down for this one.

NCAA Football: Penn State Blue-White Game Rich Barnes-USA TODAY Sports

While Blue-White weekend caps off spring practices for Penn State, it also gives the coaching staff an incredible opportunity to host a big recruiting weekend. And folks, when I say a big recruiting weekend, I mean a big recruiting weekend. I’ve been following recruiting heavily since the 2010 class, and I can’t remember the last time this many top uncommitted prospects were in town for the spring game. Let’s get to the confirmed list so far:

As for potential commitments, it doesn’t take a genius to realize Penn State isn’t getting out of the weekend without a #WeAre...Better tweet. Obviously, the $64,000 question is who? Personally, I’d keep an eye on the offensive line. Saleem Wormley is back for his second weekend in a row, and might have done a little foreshadowing on twitter earlier this week. Although, he did just tweet out that his Notre Dame official visit is set for June so that could be a holdup. Caedan Wallace is another prospect I know is high on Penn State, and as he told me at the Nike Camp, whenever it feels right, that’s when he’ll commit. It wouldn’t be a big surprise if it’s this weekend.

Outside of the offensive line, Andre White is always a candidate when he’s on campus, but I know he wants to take an official to USC. The Connecticut secondary duo of Tyler Rudolph and Marquis Wilson are in the same boat — very high on Penn State, but want to take more visits.

In past years, I think a lot of these guys would have been committed by now — whether to Penn State or other schools — but the implementation of spring officials has kept them on the board longer than anticipated. While that could still be the case after this weekend, you have to think a couple of these guys come to the realization that Penn State is the school for them. Last week, Oklahoma landed four commitments over their spring game weekend, and then added two more in the following days. While I don’t think the Nittany Lions will be quite as successful, I do think we’ll see commitments — that’s plural — over the weekend.
