Nittany Lions Den:
The Penn State football season may have ended two weeks ago, but the work certainly hasn’t.
While well-deserved honors have rolled in for a host of Nittany Lions and coach Bill O’Brien, it’s O’Brien and his staff that have ramped up preparation for next season and beyond.
The one, and only one, benefit to not having a bowl game is that the coaching staff can really concentrate on recruiting. And with the heavy-handed scholarship limitations that Mark Emmert handed down, figuring out recruiting will be the number one task over the next several years for O’Brien.
One hint of what Penn State’s strategy may be in dealing with the scholarship numbers is how they have targeted the top junior college quarterback prospect Jake Waters.
Waters, who had astounding numbers in leading Iowa Western to the NJCAA national championship Sunday, is somebody that the Nittany Lions have shown great interest in and, in fact, plan on visiting his home next week.
