Just days after receiving his first Division I offer from Temple, Pennington (N.J.) School offensive tackle Jordan Page took a trip to State College to take in the Nittany Lions’ junior day.
Page picked up his first offer from Temple last week.
Visiting among many other 2013 prospects, Page was able to take in the Penn State campus for the first time.
“It was a really good visit, really informative,” said the 6-foot-5 lineman on Tuesday. “I liked the coaching staff, you always hear about Penn state and how good of a program it has been, but it was cool to see it all in person.”
Going through the routine of junior day Page saw all Penn State had to offer, especially when it came to the new offensive line coach, Mac McWhorter.
“Oh man, that’s a coach right there, he breeds offensive lineman,” praised Page. “His history, going all the way back to Georgia, and then to Texas was impressive to hear.
“I like the fact they are running a pro-style offense, and the lineman they are looking for are pretty much my build, tall, athletic, and long. I like Coach Mac, we had a really good vibe.”
Though the staff is taking things slow right now in terms of handing out offers to lineman, Page said he will be keeping in touch with McWhorter, with possible visits for the spring game and over the summer in the works.
Along with Penn State and Temple, the 300-pound Jersey native is hearing from South Carolina, Rutgers, Boston College, Central Florida and West Virginia. Page will be taking visits to a number of those schools in the coming months.
