Former Penn State offensive lineman Josh Marks has enrolled at Pitt and will join the Panthers next week when classes begin as a walk-on.
Marks, who is from Class A powerhouse Southern Columbia High School, was rated as the third best linemen in Pennsylvania in the class of 2007 by Rivals.Com and chose the Nittany Lions over offers from Pitt, West Virginia and Rutgers.
However, he decided to transfer from Penn State after the spring semester and after gaining a release from his scholarship. He had been in search of a place to finish his career. Marks, who will be re-united with one of his former Southern Columbia teammates, fullback Henry Hynoski, will be a redshirt freshman and will have three years of eligibility left after sitting out this season.
Wow... I never thought he'd make it a DI, let alone PSU. Now he's at another DI school? Hynoski always made that line look good in HS anyway, kid was a bull. Our 135 lb LB/DE was around Marks and in the backfield every posession at least once. Kid cannot move.
I thought he'd end up at Bloomsburg.
