The Lions247 Podcast returns with a fresh episode as an eventful June on the college football recruiting trail reaches its final stretch. The ongoing intrigue and a rapid pace of developments requires us to again call upon site recruiting reporter Tyler Calvaruso, who helps bring listeners up to speed before turning attention toward another impact weekend.
Following some midweek official visit action, Penn State is set to host another collection of official visitors on campus starting Friday, presenting another opportunity to impress prospects and their families in a personal setting. Thus far, such visits have resulted in three June commitments, sending the Nittany Lions to No. 4 in 247Sports’ composite class rankings. As noted on this episode, official visit confirmations are continuing to come in, including a post-recording confirmation from Alabama defensive back TJ Metcalf.
Before placing focus on some specific incoming visitors, we review an ever-changing Class of 2023 recruiting landscape and the potential ramifications for Penn State. From a Nittany Lions commit on another campus to a series of Crystal Ball picks in favor of PSU, there is plenty to sort through. Plus, Penn State extended a few offers following its latest Elite Showcase camp, so we take a look at those new targets.
Then it’s time to welcome back Lions247 colleague Daniel Gallen, who recently ranked all 12 Penn State matchups of the upcoming season based on “importance”. That leaves things open to interpretation, and a bit of debate, on Penn State’s possible successes and pitfalls as the 2022 campaign plays out.
