Penn State Lands Top WR Prospect

Chris Bell, a standout wide receiver from Norfolk, Virginia, gave a verbal commitment to Penn State on Monday evening. He is rated as a four-star prospect by Rivals.com and is a Rivals100 prospect. Bell is Penn State's top prospect landed so far in this class. I will post more on this tomorrow as well as the verbal comittment of Maryland DE/LB Aaron Maybin to Penn State. Both are tremendous prospects who have started to get Penn State's recruiting class rolling. Bell is going to to further strengthen an already lethal Penn State corps of wideouts. How many defenses are going to want to see Derrick Williams, Chris Bell, Deon Butler and Jordan Norwood, among other various young receivers staring at them across the line of scrimmage. Bell may be the final piece of Penn State's offensive puzzle. As long as the offensive line comes together, the 2006 Penn State offense may very well be the best Nittany Lion offense since 1994, considered one of the greatest offenses in the history of college football.

Maybin is one of the top defensive prospects in the mid-atlantic region this year. He can play DE and LB and with Penn State's lack of depth, he, as well as fellow verbal Eric Lattimore from Delaware, will likley see playing time as true freshmen as a mostly veteran defense in 2005 will transform into a very young defense.

Congrats to Chris and Aaron. The best of luck to them in their Penn State careers.
