After a year of not hosting recruits because of COVID-19, the Penn State football program will begin a huge part of what makes their recruiting process so successful: getting high school players into Beaver Stadium to experience the atmosphere on Gameday.
After opening the season on the road with a big win over No. 12 Wisconsin, the Nittany Lions will open their home schedule this Saturday when they host Ball State. Kickoff from Beaver Stadium will take place at 3:30 PM.
Penn State will actually play their next four games at home, hosting Ball State, Auburn, Villanova and Indiana, so they’ll be plenty of Penn State football targets traveling to State College.
Nittany Sports Now will be keeping you updated on which recruits plan on making visits over the next two weekends. Here’s who we’ve confirmed that will be making visits this weekend for the Ball State game.
