Any chance this kid gets a hard look by the staff? He is out of New Jersey and is an absolute bulldozer running the ball. Penn State is listed under schools of interest, but no offer.
If I remember correctly he had interest in us a while back, not sure what happened though.
I think Sean said he had moved on.
And according to Mr. Flood, Wisconsin SHOULD land him.
With National Signing Day now in the rear view mirror, Badger247 begins to focus on the 2014 recruiting class, looking at five prospects Wisconsin should land from that class.
If O'Brien wants to keep using a bruising, hard runner as a primary back, then this is a kid they have to go after!
I don't know who you are trying to convince here.
According to Evan, Wisconsin's class would rival Alabama's.

He's friends with Pollard, who jumped ship after the sanctions.
His dad posted here twice awhile back. Said Gerald came to a game and it really opened his eyes. Was really interested in PSU and was looking forward to visiting in the future. From then until I cut off my subscription (mid-August) I heard nothing about him. So idk what's been said about him since then, but I'm not sure the staff is buying. Maybe they don't think he projects well to the next level, idk. He doesn't really fit the Patriot type back that BOB would look for anyway. DE might be his future position imo.

So glad that Sean/Cory/Steve do not blow smoke up our asses with regards to recruits. So far, they've been pretty on for pretty much every recruit since I signed up.

Best part about them. Good or bad you can trust them to tell you the truth. Same with Jeff and his articles. I appreciate the integrity.
Questions about Gerald; As of now, G is one of the top RB recruits in the country. He has a wide range of offers and unfortunately Penn State is not one of them at this moment. I dont believe it is because of Pollard leaving.if it is, shame on Penn State they would be missing out on a very talented Rb. With that being said its still a little early so a lot of things can happen between now and August we will just have to wait and see. Oh and by the way all Geralds offers are for RB. They are as of today, RUTGERS, MICH. ST.,SOUTH CAROLINA, TEXAS,BOSTON COLLEGE, WISCONSIN,TEMPLE. On the way, Ohio ST., Michigan, Notre Dame, Alabama,is Penn St.next? Even if Penn St. doesnt offer Gerald will be fine at any school he chooses.As long as he is receiving a great education and playing at the highest level of college competition
all will be good.
Glad to hear things are going well for Gerald and he has family helping him through a very difficult process. Congrats to your family during this exciting time....

I personally think he would be a great compliment to Allen. Gerald is a complete battering ram running the ball.
I think the lack of an offer has more to do with the limited scholarships than anything else.
If PSU had a class of 20+ this year, it might happen sooner rather than later.
I agree 100% ... We are struggling to find ways to get to just 15 recruits this year.
At this point we won't be able to offer him till later, in my opinion.
It's not indicative of his play or PSU's lack of interest. To think PSU is not recruiting this kid because of Jamil Pollard is absurd.
If winning was easy even losers would do it.
