Think This Commit Is Fired Up To Play For Penn State?

Penn LiveWhen recruits visit Penn State out of season, the trip usually begins with most, if not all, of the Lions’ coaching staff and recruiting department assembling at the front doors of the Lasch Building to welcome them.

As a frequent visitor to University Park, four-star Hyattsville, Md., DeMatha Catholic four-star end and class of 2016 commit Shane Simmons knows the drill well.

So well, in fact, that his family recreated it in reverse to welcome Franklin and running backs coach Charles Huff for an in-home visit.

Don’t have a ton of regrets in life, but if I could do it all over again, I’d go back to high school and get myself recruited by major D1 programs. See what it’s like you know, to get pursued by the best teams in college sports, get wooed and courted. That’s it, really the only thing I’d change. Just think it would be cool to dance in my living room with a big time football coach who just spent a year begging me to come play for him and save his program. Nothing big. Wouldn’t even make myself a 5-star, I’d be fine with 4 – I mean this kid is a 4-star and he got to rave with James Franklin in the kitchen, I could settle for something like that.
