BEAMON DECIDING FRIDAY
Four-star DT Hakeem Beamon had hinted at committing on June 16, but it now appears that he will be making the call this Friday, June 1.
There has been a big change of plans‼️ 6/1/18, 5:00 pm— Hakeem Beamon (@hakeem_beamon) May 29, 2018
As for Beamon’s final schools, it remains to be seen who made the cut. He’s high on Alabama and Ohio State, but I don’t believe he’s a take at either school right now. Penn State seems like the likely choice considering it was his most recent visit on May 12, but with the Nittany Lions maybe only taking one defensive tackle this class, are they comfortable with it being Beamon? One way or the other, we’ll find out shortly enough.
Personally, I like Beamon quite a bit, and was surprised Penn State didn’t offer when he first visited in the fall. His junior film is impressive, and he has the growth potential to be a heck of a 3-Tech. I, for one, would be in favor of him putting on a Penn State hat on Friday.
KELLY MOVES UP DECISION BY ONE DAY
Virginia four-star DB Cam’Ron Kelly was originally going to announce on June 8, but will now be doing so on June 7 instead.

Owing all 18 predictions on Kelly’s 247Sports Crystal Ball, Penn State still the overwhelming leader here. But it should be noted that Kelly did take an official visit to Virginia two weekends ago, according to his 247 profile so this one might not be the total slam dunk we thought it was.
PENN STATE AFTER OHIO STATE COMMIT
Maryland native and Ohio State commit Bryson Shaw can now add a Penn State offer to his impressive list as the Nittany Lions extended an offer to the three-star safety late last week.
Probably doubtful that Penn State could flip an Ohio State commit (or vice versa, honestly), but distance would be in the Nittany Lions’ favor in this case. If anything else, maybe this makes Ohio State work a little bit harder than they normally would to keep a kid in the class? No real downside to offering, especially since Shaw has flipped before, originally committing to Wisconsin.
2019 D.C. DEFENSIVE END EARNS OFFER
The Nittany Lions continue to hit the DMV hard, now offering Tre’Mon Morris-Brash, a 6-foot-3, 230-pound defensive end from Washington D.C.
Truly thankful to have another opportunity to attend another prestigious university. I am proud to announce that I have received an offer from Pennsylvania State University. #WeAre #LLHB #LLL #AreWe? ⏱ pic.twitter.com/0pC91M4PeN— 3BoyDrop (@dolladrop) May 24, 2018
Morris-Brash (wish it was Morris-Bash) also landed offers from Oklahoma and Florida this May so it’s been a pretty sweet month for him. We’ll see if Penn State becomes a player here.
