Man, say goodbye to the original recruiting thread from 2009. RIP to a real one.
And just an FYI:
10 posts were merged into an existing topic: Poll - Recruiting Thread or Threads?
2020 recruiting could shape up as a pretty good recovery from last season, but depends on DJ Gordon, IMO.
Presuming 2019-20 can be this staff’s true breakout season, that means there could be an opportunity in the 2021 class to land a more Big 10-competitive class.
Here’s the top* 2021 prospects in PA, the DMV and Delaware as ranked by Rivals and 247, with the 247 composite ranking shown:

I marked them as confirmed Penn State contact if they are listed by UncleLar, Verbal Commits, Rivals, 247 or are a blood relative of any current Penn State players.
- Taquan Woodley of Camden, who is under the radar right now but who @Phillyhoops4life suggests may be the best prospect in the Philly area or other kids under the radar
- Other kids Penn State has reportedly already offered who would unquestionably be good gets
Props to @tjb twitter:
Now I just want @Shooter_Deej14 cause of his twitter handle haha!

Just sticking this in the recruiting thread for some reason.
Temple and Penn State figure to have similar recruiting aspirations for a while.
For the well versed Philly guys…somewhere Paul and Joey Gripper are nodding their heads in agreement.
