Tommy Schutt has picked PSU after being spurned by both ND and M. Good for him. I kinda felt a little bad for him. Glad to see him land at a good school.
They also picked up 4 star WR Eugene Lewis.
Nice night recruiting in Happy Valley.
Scout, Several twitter sources are backing this up
I'm guessing they'll also be picking up Armani Reeves on Friday. Not a bad week of recruiting for them.
They look like they could end up the process with Jarron Jones, Noah Spence, and Devin Fuller as well. Definitely not a bad year for PSU recruiting.
Is putting together a very nice class.
Not that ours was that great last year either, but it makes up for their fairly mediocre 2011 class. They got a couple good linemen and a speedy slot ninja in Bill Belton...other than that...
Nice pick up for them. Gotta say though, I'm happier that we ended up with Pipkins.
If you haven't figured it out yet, Ondre Pipkins told me today that he committed to Michigan last Thursday, which is why Schutt didn't visit
Will this stick?
It almost seems like this is a recruiting version of a rebound romance: Schutt tries to commit to ND and is beaten to the punch by Day, then tries to visit UM who says, "thanks but we got our guy [Pipkins]" and then almost immediately commits to PSU (had he even visited them recently?). It seems like an act of desperation by a kid who is seeing his options dry up and panics.
This whole week-long saga with Schutt is just odd.
Sounds like my love life. ZING!
But really though.
Pretty sure Schutt would have comitted to Michigan on his visit. I think Pipkins is the better player though.
Poor kid had to settle for option 3, a pig farm with a corpse for a coach
Seriously, why does anyone go to Penn State anymore? Stuck out in the middle of nowhere playing for an octogenarian who can't possibly have more than a couple of years left in the tank. I simply don't understand how they keep doing it.
It's a fun college town but it really does smell like a barnyard when you first get out of your car. Pretty funny, actually.
Nice. I think this is awesome as Ohio thought they had a shot at landing Schutt. Apparently not. Would love to hear what they are all saying now.
Most ND people were expecting him to end up there before the coaching change and all the other stuff coming to light. He didn't want anything to do with them after that.
he changed his mind then. Would much rather see him at PSU than Ohio. They were just talking the other day that if they could land Schutt, Washington, Odenigbo and keep Dunn, everyone would start talking about their class more than Michigan's. Hopefully all those guys do not end up there
Psu going to work... At least it's not sparty or tsio. Congrats to happy valley.
Man, Penn State will have an amazing DL in a few years. Zettel, Schutt, Jones, maybe Spence, plus the other few from the last few years. It will be hard for us to top that, even with the talent we brought in this year.
Dunno, the O-line class we seem to be bringing in seems pretty damn good too...
Good luck Tommy - you look like an oustanding player, and I hope you have a great career - just take it easy when we play! ;-)
It is nice to see the good sportsmanship here.
I too hope for the best for this kid, especially since he's not in our division.
