Zaire isn't a 4 star anywhere.
David Williams isn't coming because Fuller can't give him a ride.
Boyd isn't coming.
That leaves Anzalone. And I'm not saying I believe it. Just saying that I wouldn't always believe anything that comes from VBR.

He's a 3 star, unless Rivals has him as a 4 star.
Anzalone..... PSU lock at 9:46 PM 6/27/2012 (heard it first here)
I misread the post. I thought he said of the four "star" recruits coming, one favors us (meaning we are getting four very good recruits in) - I now see he meant "four-star" recruits as in rating.
I have to assume he meant Tyler Boyd, who is now out. Who else could it be?

3* everywhere. Tolley usually references 247 rankings anyway. Until we get a final list of who is showing up I guess we only have AA and maybe that MI QB who we know will be there.

"Whoever’s trying to kill me isn’t getting the job done. But one day, I’m going to punch that f___r in the face."
He did say the Dorian had us as the favorite despite what everyone else was saying, so you never know. I hope he is right just because it would send ND fans into a depression.
I would bet he was talking about David Williams, who he probably doesn't realize isn't coming anymore. That seems like the best guess to me
After he commits, you're going to hear more about how BOB reached out to the family after his decommitment from OSU and how impressed his parents are with BOB.
It was just a matter of getting accepted into the BS/MBA program.
BTW ... Apparently AA didn't get to the Breneman crib today, but some kid named Nathan Orris did.
Nathan Orris @Nathan_Orris6
Great dinner! Thanks to the Breneman family! @AdamBreneman87
I am guessing this is all speculation.
Also, that Orris kid is someone from ABs HS team.
I don't know this for a fact. I'm just connecting the dots.
I remember what his older brother, Chris, had said and remember reading something about BOB making the call to the family. The final piece to the puzzle was when he took the SAT's again. The only school he needed better scores for was PSU.
I must have nothing better to do so I'm trying to connect some dots of my own.
VBR had a roundtable on the 22nd where they all picked who would end up where. Another guy on Twitter (from VBR) and TT both said they'd like to change a roundtable prediction right before TT Tweeted this...actually they prob all would want to change it. Only 4*guy no one picked to PSU is Anzalone.
At the risk of looking way too much into what's probably just a guess or speculation on Tolley's part:
His previous tweet said that he wanted to change one of his roundtable picks. Making the assumptions that 1) the recruit in question is uncommitted and 2) that he wants to change his pick from another school to Penn State, we get the following possibilities:
Anzalone, Ball, Boyd, Deeb, Green, Harris, Newby, Stevenson, and Vanderdoes.
Of these recruits, only Anzalone is both a 4 star and visiting tomorrow (to my knowledge). Boyd would also be a possibility if Tolley hasn't heard Boyd can't make it.
That said, there's no way I believe Anzalone "heavily favors" Penn State at this point based on all we've heard from Sean, Cory, and elsewhere.
Beat me to it by a few seconds haha
This is before the change, correct?
You did a better job FWIW.
TT seems pretty well connected to this board and it seems recruits as well so he may be in the know on Boyd not visiting but it would make more sense on the surface than AA. One never does know I guess.
If I'm reading you correctly you mean his decommit from OSU and the answer is after. Here's the article in reference... http://victorybellrings.com/2012/06/22/vbr-recruiting-roundtable-predictions-of-where-recruits-will-attend/
I apologize if this is getting out of the realm of the Twitter thread btw

Maybe when Tolley sent out that tweet he was unaware that David Williams is no longer coming. Just me thinking out loud that's all. God I hope he's referring to Anzalone.
Only Boyd and Anzalone fit the profile, i.e. not picked to end up at PSU by any VBR writer. So he may be under the impression that Boyd was still visiting. Regardless, setting aside the fact that it is thus far an unsubstantiated rumor, getting either of the two would be a great pull. Ok, I'm done with the speculation. Until we get some more info I'll leave it at that.
Agreed 100%. Before Boyd decided not to come, I was hopeful for both to be big time leans for us and maybe for one to pull the trigger. AA is going to love Smeal. I think we take the lead after his visit. And plenty of quality time with Hack and co. and with Van and the staff will do wonders for us IMO. We have everything he wants in a school and we are only a couple hrs away... And he already has family here...
WE ARE! And we will always be...
Just for fun, any chance it's Newby?
It's Anzalone. Won't divulge premium info from another site, but Ryan Snyder from BWI had some very "interesting" insight on this much earlier today. Either Tolley read that and is just repeating it, or he's heard it independently. Either way, if true, it's very positive.
Damn lol I want you to divulge...
Truth is, outside of the fact that we've continuously been told otherwise I've always just had a positive feeling about AA. Almost like he's been playing the field for a while but will settle down with his high school sweetheart in the end. Why else would he keep visiting?
I dunno but I hope you're right and like your perspective. Because it involves us getting AA lol
