Sounds hopeful. Him visiting PSU once more is a good sign as well.
I told you (you were there, right?!?) on our Facebook page last week that I had heard Penn State held a slight edge in obtaining the services of Dorian Joh
This would be a Pitt barometer worth taking off work for...god I hope this happens!!!
PENN STATE FOREVER
Neck and neck favors PSU imo.
Especially with PSU getting another visit before he decides.
Very positive developments for psu.
Has his Mom been to PSU yet with him on a visit?

Not yet but she is coming this time. This to me means psu is ahead especially if mom is there for last visit.
Thanks for the replies. I knew she is coming this time but didn't know if she's been there before...
Pitt doesn't have enough fans to do a barometer.
Bring back Walt Harris
Think paterno poops himself in heaven
We have mcCoy and Fitzgerald! We are better than psu
12-0 why would Johnson go there. We won last time we played
The acc is better than the big ten
Who cares about fan support, there is so much to do in Pittsburgh
Again, if not for him being the "man" of the house and tight with his family, he would be a Lion right now. This trip might be to convince his mother in PSU and that its not too far away.
Dorian Johnson is to Pitt; like David Williams is to PSU. They are or were both thought of to be heavy leans to those respective schools, but for some reason, they aren't yet convinced that school is the choice. Whether it happens or not for either school, its taking way longer than what people expected.
They are nothing alike. Williams is taking trips, but we are the clear leader and there is no one else pushing us. Johnson is genuinely torn between two schools.
Some of you have taken this unfounded stance that there is something happening with William's recruitment wherein we are not in as strong a position as we thought. Multiple "insiders" have stated it is entirely possible that Williams will end his recruitment sooner than he is saying publicly. Everyone is saying we lead by quite a bit. There is no reason to be uncomfortable with our position at present, and any statement suggesting a lack of confidence is nothing other than misplaced insecurity.
“We’re doing things we couldn’t imagine,” says safety Stephen Obeng-Agyapong. “But we’re doing them together.”
I thought I heard that Johnson's mom is fine with him going away for school? It was Johnson himself that had some concerns with it.
"On paper they have nothing to play for– no bowl games, rankings, or championships– yet they play like they have everything on the line."
There is too small of a statistical sampling size of fans in Heinz field on game day let alone for off season recruiting.
I was wondering why I wasn't excited and I realized its cuz their freakout would be like 4 quality posts

They certainly are alot a like. I can't name one recruiting outlet that says Johnson doesn't have Pitt as his leader and Williams as PSU. It's been this way for months. That said, there is something that neither kid is all in for either school.
Williams is taking trips? He has only visited Wisconsin and PSU I believe. I think Johnson has been to more schools than Williams (Pitt, PSU, WVU, ND). You must be going off the Williams' list saying he'd like to visit USCe, USCw, OSU and Miami - trips he hasn't made yet. Then again, Johnson has stated he wanted to visit OSU and re-visit WVU before making his decision. Yes, Johnson is torn between PSU and Pitt.
As for Williams, if we aren't being pushed by anyone here, you have to wonder why he hasn't gone public. I don't buy the he wants to have the red carpet treatment just to go through the process, or I don't buy his recruitment is the second coming of Justin Brown's either. Something is holding this kid back. JC Shurburt even said so on the Bill King Show today.
Fact is, as everyone thinks Johnson to Pitt and Williams to PSU are inevitable, they certainly aren't locks either. They both could very well end up at different locations.
I wonder if they would even make it to four?....I bet they will just use their copy and paste attacks mostly centered Sandusky.
This is big, literally and figuratively. We NEED DJ in this class.

I'm hoping that he will choose to be part of O'Brien's first class at Penn State.

He apparently hasn't spoken to some posters here who GAVE him away to that high school in western PA weeks and weeks ago. I'm sure he's draggin' mom all the way to PSU to make sure she's good with him staying home.
