Recruiting notebook: PSU offers Brubaker, son of 1986 national title team member

Ryan Brubaker has seen his recruitment explode recently, and that trend continued Tuesday when Penn State offered the in-state lineman. Brubaker, a 6-foot-6, 280-pound offensive tackle, hails from Denver, Pa., and plays for Cocalico High School. His father, Jeff Brubaker, was a member of the Nittany Lions’ 1986 national championship team.

The younger Brubaker is still unranked per the 247 Sports Composite, but that’s likely to change soon, as he’s garnered nearly a dozen scholarship offers over the past month. Some of the schools who have targeted Brubaker during that time include Pitt, Arizona State, Tennessee Virginia, South Carolina, and Ole Miss. His initial offers came in August from UConn and UMass.

Following his junior campaign this fall, Brubaker was recognized as an All-State performer in Class 4A by the PA Football Writers. He also participates in track and field and swimming.

Nittany Lions add to 2022 targets

Brubaker was not the only Class of 2022 target who recently received an offer from Penn State, however, as the Nittany Lions targeted a half dozen other prospects dating back to last week. Those new targets for James Franklin include Terian Williams II, Maleek McNeil, Dillon Bell, D’Arco Perkins-McAllister, Mumu Bin-Wahad and Dylan Reid.

Williams, from Alpharetta, Georgia, is evaluated as a three-star athlete. His other notable offers include Florida, Florida State, Indiana, Iowa, LSU, Michigan, and Virginia Tech.

McNeil, a three-star offensive tackle from Easthampton, Massachusetts, stands 6-foot-8 and tips the scale at 330 pounds. Pitt, Rutgers, and Syracuse are among his notable offers.

Bell, who remains unranked, is a wide receiver from Houston, Texas. He has collected offers from Minnesota, Mississippi State, Ole Miss, Tennessee, and Virginia Tech, among others.

Perkins-McAllister, an unranked safety, has seen his stock skyrocket in February, as he’s been extended offers by Georgia, Mississippi State, Tennessee, Virginia Tech, LSU, Texas A&M, and the Nittany Lions during that time.

Bin-Wahad, another safety who has not yet received a ranking, hails from Loganville, Georgia. His prominent offers include Michigan State, Arizona State, Minnesota, Mississippi State, Virginia, and West Virginia.

Lastly, Reid is a Florida linebacker who plays at Chaminade-Madonna High School, the same school that produced former Penn State receiver John Dunmore. Reid has also garnered offers that include Maryland, Syracuse, and Florida Atlantic.

PSU targets Johnson, Rose commit elsewhere

A pair of PSU defensive targets for the Class of 2022 are off the board, as they committed elsewhere recently.

Last week, Pennsylvania inside linebacker Anthony Johnson pledged to Rutgers, choosing the Scarlet Knights over offers that included Penn State, as well as Alabama, Auburn, Ohio State, Oregon, and Texas A&M. Johnson, who attends Neumann Goretti High School in Philadelphia, is a four-star prospect and the 165th rated player for the class.

On Tuesday, three-star safety Anthony Rose gave a verbal commitment to South Carolina. Rose, from Hallandale, Florida, included Penn State and Arizona as his other finalists before selecting the Gamecocks. The Nittany Lions entered the mix in his recruitment when they offered him in January.

Gould includes Nittany Lions in top list

A premier defensive back prospect recently included Penn State among his top choices. Class of 2022 cornerback Jaeden Gould, evaluated as a four-star player who is ranked 141st nationally, released a top six list on Tuesday that consisted of the Nittany Lions, along with Notre Dame, Rutgers, Clemson, Southern Cal, and Michigan. Gould, from Oradell, New Jersey, plays for Bergen Catholic. Penn State offered him in July, 2019.
