NEW YORK CITY ATHLETE TAKES IN PENN STATE
Penn State got its unofficial visit weekend off to an early start as it hosted three-star athlete William Mohan.

Mohan is an interesting prospect. He’s listed at 6-foot-1, but looking at the picture with James Franklin, he’s probably more in the 5-foot-11 realm. Regardless, the kid is an absolute terror on the football field — his nickname is “Apache” for a reason. He doesn’t have Khaleke Hudson’s build, but a similar prospect in that he’s a safety/linebacker tweener, but a heck of an athlete regardless of size.
This was Mohan’s first visit to Penn State so we’ll see where things go from here. He attends Erasmus Hall, which has been good to Ohio State in the past, but perhaps the Nittany Lions can buck that trend.
With spring practice underway, many of the nation’s top prospects will be making the trek to Happy Valley for unofficial visits. One of those prospects? Four-star Maryland DT Coziah Izzard.
The 6-foot-3, 280-pound Izzard has been to Penn State seven times since the beginning of his high school career, so it’s clear he has a large amount of interest in the Nittany Lions. We’ll see what comes of the weekend, but getting Izzard back on campus for another visit certainly doesn’t hurt.
TENNESSEE COMMIT COMING TO HAPPY VALLEY
Joining Izzard in State College this weekend will be 2020 wide receiver Antonio Barber and 2021 cornerback Mario Love Jr.

Barber, who has been committed to Tennessee since last April, doesn’t currently have a Penn State offer listed, but that could very well change this weekend. The same could be the case for his teammate Love, a 2021 prospect with offers from North Carolina, Tennessee, NC State, Duke, and others.
Penn State sent out a number of offers the last few days. Here it is in a nice little list for you:
- 2020 CB Ayden hector (WA)
- 2020 TE Kendall Karr (NC)
- 2021 DT Aaron Armitage (NJ)
- 2021 OG Jager Burton (KY)
- 2022 TE Jake Johnson (GA)
