The recruiting news this weekend was good for Penn State: The Nittany Lions, according to multiple recruiting services, received commitments from athlete DaeSean Hamilton, linebackers Zayd Issah and Jonathan Walton and defensive back Anthony Smith. That means Penn State has 17 for the class of 2013 (some of which will enroll early so PSU can stay at the limit of 15 per the NCAA) but is missing one key position: quarterback.
Though Christian Hackenberg, a top quarterback recruit, has committed to Penn State, he won't arrive until the fall (assuming he stays committed) and the Nittany Lions will have only one quarterback in the spring. Aside from the fact that one quarterback will make for a really awkward Blue-White game, it will not benefit Bench or Penn State to have no competition throughout the spring. Thus: Jake Waters.
Waters, who played quarterback for Iowa Western community college, is being recruited heavily by Penn State and K-State, according to recruiting sites, along with getting interest from Texas and Alabama. Waters tweeted today that he received a visit from coach Bill O'Brien and was showing coach Bill O'Brien around campus.
He is a very wanted man, in a good way. Look to Twitter for an example. Waters is getting pleas from K-State fans and Penn State fans to come to their school (which is technically against NCAA rules).
National signing day is in February, meaning Waters can take his time.
