[OT] Penn State may have accidentally leaked silent commit, 2018 4* WR Solomon Enis

Submitted by BoFlex on December 21st, 2017 at 4:18 PM

Penn State twitter just deleted a tweet announcing all the signed Letters of Intents they received yesterday, which included a currently uncommitted WR Solomon Enis.

Just interesting because there were active rumors that Penn State recieved a NLI from a "silent commit" that wanted to announce at a later date. Most people believed that recruit was DE Jayson Oweh, who was scheduled to announce his commitment at the UA All-American game.

Looks like some intern might have just messed up, and taken away Enis's moment instead, but the silver linings is that Oweh's recruitment may still be up in the air.

How FG Franklin managed to convince this many blue-chips to go to Happy Valley is beyond me:

Penn State is a legit concern.

I posted this in the OSU thread:

Beware: Penn State is a sleeping giant.  

Paterno had that program sleep walking his last decade.  He did not even go visit recruits. 

Then came the sanctions.

But Penn State has advantages that Ohio State does . . . the only major program in a talent rich area - PA, NJ, MD/DC (no, Pitt and Maryland don't count).

Most people on this board have never seen a fully weaponized Penn State, but it is deadly.

We need to gain critical mass in the recruiting areas of NJ and MD/DC before they completely take off.

They had 20-30 4* and 5* players. The last 3 years they have 40-50 4* and 5* players. I know they had sanctions and coaching transitions, but good lord. I’m thinking that franklin must be spiking his snake oil or something. I don’t care how personable he may be. Dude has demonstrated moronic game management and said some pretty dumb things to the media. I find it hard to believe he can lure in that many kids playing above board.

Penn State has always been a recruiting powerhouse. Franklin is a great recruiter. The math adds up to continued powerhouse recruiting. And Franklin is looking like a better coach than we gave him credit for being, even if he is still that creepy fucker who covered up rape allegations against his players at Vandy while droolingly discussing his assustants' wives.

There is also some weird loophole where it's only a violation if the recruit doesn't end up signing with the team.  PSU trotted Lavert Hill onto the ice during a PSU hockey game and announced him to everyone.  It only became a violation once he signed with the good guys.  Since then I've often wondered what happened of this violation.  Anyone know?
