Central Dauphin (Pa.) athlete Zayd Issah discusses when he will potentially visit Penn State, Oregon and he gives the latest in his recruitment.
Follow me on Twitter @Lions247
always seemed to be looking for an oregon offer, but would love to have him back on board
The chances are slim that a kid who once verballed to XXX school before decommitting comes back in the fold.
Very true, but Oregon seems to be the only other school he's actually considering going to so we might have a shot to get him back.
This kid is looking for a reason to go to Oregon. Gut feeling ... he visits Oregon and jumps on board before leaving Eugene on his visit. The only way he doesn't end up there is because they fill up at LB and close on the LBs ahead of him in the pecking order.
I think you're right. The comment that gave me pause was when he said he thought that he fit as a hybrid OLB/DE, but Oregon was recruiting him as an ILB. Just something to note.
He has an offer.

Realllllly hope we can get him back on board..
I've said it before and I'll say it again. Zayd really wants to play for Oregon, his entire family lives there except for his mom and step dad. His step dad is sick and he is very close to him, that is why he is on the fence.
My biggest hope for the LB position isn't really a name, it is that Vandy gets to chose who he wants in the end. I trust in Vandy personally

Thanks for the insight. Hope his stepfather recovers from his illness, and also hope Zayd still considers PSU.
i know, was talking about when we were ecruiting him. He didnt at the time, and he does now. He will visit there and likely commit.
He can have the best 110,000+ of family if he comes to PSU!!!
We need to recruit kids that are able to see the big picture of what Penn St has to offer. Obviously you will be missing out on a few bowl games, but if you come to Penn St, you will still play in front of close to 100,000 fans at home, be on TV every week, get incredible coaching w/an eye toward the next level, and most importantly graduate w/a great degree. As an added bonus a reduced roster likely means that playing time will come early and often.
If I was PSU I would put together a video presentation of highlights showing PSU Linebackers coached by Vandy making plays in school and then in the NFL. Show him Shaw, Poz, Conner, Hull, Lee, Bowman, Stupar and then finish with highlights with Mauti and Hodges. At the end of the of the clips I would have it read all in caps "COULD YOU BE NEXT?" I'd turn the lights on look him dead in the eye and say we believe you can.
