College Football’s official national signing day won’t be as eventful for Penn State as early signing day was, but a 247Sports crystal ball prediction says the Nittany Lions might be getting a surprise signee Wednesday.
Olaivavega “Vega” Ioane, a 6-foot-4, 320-pound offensive line prospect from Graham, Washington, who’s a three-star according to 247’s composite rankings– is projected by three of four crystal balls to stay in-state and go to the University of Washington, but a fourth– 247’s Director of Football Recruiting Steve Wiltfong– has Ioane choosing Penn State with a “6” confidence level.
The other three expert predictions– National Recruiting Editor Brandon Huffman, Scott Ekuland of Dawgman.com and Ryland Spencer of CascadiaPreps.com– have Ioane becoming a Washington Husky.
Along with Penn State and Washington, Ioane has offers from Minnesota, Arizona and Arizona State. Should he pick the Nittany Lions, Ioane would be the fourth offensive lineman signed to the 2022 class, joining Drew Shelton, JB Nelson and Maleek McNeil.
