The Penn State football team hosts the 2023 White Out game on Saturday. Not only is it an important game where the Nittany Lions host the Iowa Hawkeyes, but it's also the biggest recruiting day of the year. The Nittany Lions will host the top quarterback in the 2025 recruiting class this weekend too. Find out more on the BWI Live Recruiting Show, which airs at 10 a.m. on YouTube.
White Out meaning for Penn State
The White Out has become the landmark college football experience over the last 20 years and has made an impact socially, and strategically for Penn State. It's not just the football team that benefits from the weekend, says head coach James Franklin.
"No, I didn't have an understanding or an appreciation of the White Out. But now, obviously, not only is it impactful for us. You think about how many of our guys talk about their recruiting process and how the White out had a big impact on that. You think about when we got here, a lot of the good players that were on the team, talking about that five-overtime win with Michigan, it was a ton of guys on our roster that had experienced that. So it's meaningful. It's not just meaningful for our football program. This is a huge recruiting weekend for the other 30 sports as well. It'll be in some ways a zoo this weekend."
On today's show, we'll discuss that zoo and outline just how many players will be on campus for the football recruiting weekend. Recruiting insiders Ryan Snyder and Sean Fitz will share some select names from the list of players planning to attend and highlight names you should know. One public announcement so far is that the top quarterback in the Class of 2025, Bryce Underwood, plans to attend the game. Snyder and Fitz will talk about the impact of Underwood choosing to visit Penn State over other top games this weekend.
But the upcoming recruits are the only players that are making moves this week. The updated On300 for 2024 came out on Monday and Penn State is well represented among the top 300 players nationally. Snyder and Fitz will discuss the players that moved up and down the ranking for the class that signs in December and Januar.
Open practice report
Penn State held open practice yesterday as well. We'll give you our looks and insights into what went on with the Nittany Lions on Wednesday night. Want to get your thoughts on the show? Join the BWI Live Recruiting Show at 10 a.m. on YouTube so you be a part of the action!
