I would as well. The kid would be a stud in the Ivy League.
I agree, passing up on an Ivy scholarship seems silly to me. Not that an education from and playing football at PSU are a anything to sneeze at, but and Ivy degree sets you up for life in the business realm. I guess it depends on how important playing big-time football is to him.
Most would probably go IVY I bet. Personally, I believe the chance to play Penn State Football would be something I couldn't pass up. Some of my earliest memories are of Penn State Football. I wanted to play for the Lions since I was 4 or 5.
Add OL/DL Tom Devenney to the list.
Chad Kulka LB transferred from a scholarship at Div II Slippery Rock. Hopes to make the Run On squad but has not been permitted to work out with team just yet. Not sure what it takes for them to let him in for the workouts but I know he transferred there to play. Still has 4 years left-he was a redshirt this past fall.
thanks for the info, what kind of size and player is he? LB run-ons are in desparate need!
From a Google search.
I would hope he had conversations with the staff before making the jump. There is quite a difference between D2 and D1.
Ive seen him play both. He is a much better football player than basketball player.
Im told grades are the thing keeping him from offers. But his future is football.
He would do well to go to a prep school to get things in line & keep 4 yrs eligibility.
He could go to Lackawanna Jr College (which send kids to D1 every year) which has a good football program & he would definately get offers if he can turn the grades around.

WE ARE! And we will always be...
I saw it on scout and just checked his twitter...must of decided to think it over some more
sorry for the false alarm
Any info on Roman Clays visit?
I'd probably take the free ride as well. Graduate debt free, or close to it, with a degree from one of the best universities in the world. Not to mention he'd be the BMOC and would likely get a ton of playing time.m
That being said, would be awesome to land this kid. Multiple all state selections with offers from other schools is about as good as it gets for walkons.
Why should we have to go to class if we came here to play FOOTBALL, we ain't come to play SCHOOL, classes are POINTLESS
run on that Ryan of BWI picked up on. Great pickup by the staff here as he has some MAC offers in hand already.

"One man didn't build this program and one man sure as hell cannot tear it down."
any more news on Tom Pancoast? I hope he runs-on - he is a real solid athlete and loves PSU. but understand if he does not.
Wiltfong mentions Pancoast as a notable run-on for Penn State.
Penn State coach Bill O’Brien and the Nittany Lions are holding strong in the national Top25 recruiting rankings with a 17-player class led by five-star quarterback Christian Hackenberg and four-stars Adam Breneman, Tyler Ferguson, Andrew Nelson and Garrett Sickels. Although the Nittany Lions appear to be done recruiting scholarship guys in the class-of-2013, the “Run On” program has really caught momentum. To make up for lost scholarships due to NCAA sanctions, the Nittany Lions are building their roster with preferred walk-ons. They’ll take 15 to 20 run-ons in this class, combing the backwoods for prospects, and taking chances on others that may be considered an inch too short or a half step too slow. Penn State is giving overlooked prospects with high-growth potential an opportunity to fulfill their dream of playing major college football for a tradition-rich program inside a stadium that seats over 100,000 people for every home game. Many of these guys can play a number or positions. Three of the top “Run Ons” are Von Walker, Evan Galimberti and Tom Pancoast.
Urban Meyer closing strong yet again. ...Michigan in-line for two-headed monster out of the backfield. ...Penn State more.
Per a Wartman tweet, Tyler Phillips, Valley View HS to run on.
Watch Tyler Phillips, and 19 other videos.
What do you think?
Solid. But I have no clue what Valley View's level of competition is... Average speed, good balance, nice build to put on more lbs... Almost all of his film is at RB. I wonder where the staff wants him?
