Notebook (12-10): 4-star CB committed to Georgia ignites PSU speculation

Welcome to our daily Nittany Notebook. This post will be updated frequently throughout the day with news, notes and sometimes entertaining info. So be sure to check back often to stay on top of everything that’s going on with Penn State football and athletics, plus other sports of interest in central PA.

Update: 8:15 p.m.

**Take a look at how the Penn State coaching staff said congratulations to recruit Deshun Murrell, a 3-star running back from Alabama. And read more about Murrell here in our recruiting notebook this week.

Update: 7:50 p.m.

Here’s another Twitter update from Georgia commit De’Jahn Warren, adding even further fuel to the speculation that will be flipping to Penn State.

Still nothing official yet, though, so take all of this with a grain of salt.

Update: 1:20 p.m.

**Well, well, well, this is interesting.

Warren, a 4-star cornerback recruit from Lackawanna Community College in Maryland has already committed to Georgia. But his tweet would suggest something has changed and that perhaps he is heading to Penn State.

That has not been confirmed yet, so this is just speculation based on the tweet. But Warren (6-foot, 175) would be a big addition to PSU’s class of 2021, if indeed that is the case.

Update: 11 a.m.

**Penn State has received a commitment from 5-star punter Mitchell Groh from Dallastown Area High School. Groh received a preferred walk-on offer from PSU just last week and didn’t waste much time accepting.

“I want to thank Coach Lorig, Coach Franklin and Coach Raisbeck for giving me this incredible opportunity,” he wrote in his commitment post.

Update: 10 a.m.

**ESPN’s popular and cringe-worthy Bad Beats segment recently included a Saint Francis men’s basketball game at Liberty. As you can see in the video below, the Red Flash were +6 for the first half, only to have things go very badly in the closing seconds.


The Saint Francis clip starts at 45 seconds, and at the end, Scott Van Pelt can be heard giggling about the bad beat.
