Default Re: Penn State Football Thread

It is interesting that they take so much talent from one other state. But the KEY to success in a populated state is securing your own best in-state talent.

Out of 20 recruits in 2008, OSU's breakdown was:
Ohio- 9
Florida- 4
Maryland- 1
Texas- 1
PA- 2
GA- 1
MN- 1
Illinois- 1

It's like that every year. If you look at teams like Nebraska and Oklahoma, it's the same. They recruit some top guys from other states, but their bread and butter is wrapping up their own best in-state players.
