Only 14 recruits for the Nittany Lions today, with the prospect of Terrelle Pryor possibly joining this class. This class isn't reason for panic yet because the Lions are actually filled at the skill positions (WR/ QB/ RB/ LB). I was expecting the staff to pursue more wide receiver recruits this year seeing as most of our receiving corps will be lost to graduation and/or the draft next year. But unfortunately we only signed a 2-star recruit in A.J. Price.

The biggest shocker came from a verbal from Ohio, Michael Shaw who was supposed to be another gem in this year's limited class, but like the traitor Chad Henne, decided to commit to the Wolverines instead. Heres to hoping he gets planted into the ground often by Lion linebackers.

We tested with 'Live Blog' today at NittanyWhiteOut and it was a smashing success with participation beyond what I imagined. I'm glad to have them here and hope they visit often. But throughout the live blogging, the main area of concern was Terrelle Pryor's press conference held to announce that he will not announce. (Weird isn't it?) But basically he has thrown Penn State to the fore front of the competing schools and that he was basically going to be a Buckeye today if it had not been for his father who is pushing for Penn State. Theres nothing wrong with listening to your dad, Pryor!

But the second point of concern with this recruiting class is the lack of height in our receiving corps which is a legitimate concern seeing as we don't have Williams to depend on after next year. Overall it was great fun all around and may the Michael Shaw effigy burning begin!

I am sick so I'll comment more on the live blogging and our recruiting class in the near future.
