Darrell Scott, RB (image from Scout.com)

The good news:
• Darrell Scott, one of the top 3 running backs in the nation, has been state near the top of his list. He likes the opportunity he has to start and get playing time, as Penn State’s running back depth chart is thin
• The great news of the day. A.J. Alexander has decided to commit to a school next week. It’s down to Florida State and Penn State. Since he is only announcing it through Scout.com, and released info to Cory James, a Penn State recruiting Guru, one can expect for this Altoona native to be wearing blue and white

Top 10 reasons why Penn State will make it to the national championship:
1. Chris Bell and Andrew Quarless being developing red zone threats for Morelli
2. Notre Dame, Ohio State, Wisconsin, and Iowa are home games
3. Leadership developing by Derrick Williams and other players
4. Morelli showed improvement in the Outback Bowl
5. Austin Scott rushed for over 110 yards and 2 touchdowns in the Orange Bowl
6. Larry Johnson is the defensive line coach, one of the best there is
7. Justin King, AJ Wallace, Tony Davis, and Anthony Scirrotto could make up one of the best defensive backfields in the big ten.
8. Linebackers will be one of the top in the nation
9. Matt Hahn is a multipurpose fullback capable of running or catching the ball out of the backfield.
10. The team, the fans, the university believe.

I have made a bet on ohiostate.scout.com that if Andrew Sweat (linebacker, Trinity High school, Washington, PA) commits to Ohio State, I will wear a Ted Ginn icon till the Ohio State-Penn State game this coming fall; plus a week for each user that bets against me. If Andrew Sweat commits to Penn State, then they all have to wear an icon of Calvin Lowry returning an interception from Troy Smith in the 2005 game.

Perhaps it’s been up for a while, but I just now noticed that Scout has apparently released its initial rankings for the Hot100: http://scout.scout.com/a.z?s=73&p=9&c=4&pid=88&yr=2008
Of note:
4) Terrell Pryor (QB) 5) Darrell Scott (RB)
6) Will Hill (S)
8) Jon Major (OLB)
37) Deion Walker (WR)
39) Vinston Painter (T)
42) Sam McGuffie (RB)
52) Andrew Sweat (MLB)
68) Kenny Tate (WR)
72) A.J. Alexander (WR/RB/Athlete)

Quick Hits:
• More than 2 losses this season is an udder disappointment
• Derrick Williams, Chris Bell, Jordan Norwood, and Andrew Quarless to break out this year
• Joe Paterno does not retire… kidding me this guy never will, and I like it like that
• Anthony Morelli will no longer be viewed as “dumb” by the nation
• Larry Johnson will be the Chiefs MVP on offense, while Tamba Hali will be there MVP on defense(if not him, then Ty Law)
