I’m spending some time away with my family leading up to signing day, part deux. So I’m going to try to keep you updated as best I can through the blog the next few days. But it might be once a day, like today.

The news today for the Nittany Lions is that Joseph Darkwa, a defensive lineman from Germany, verbally committed this afternoon.

Not a big surprise here. A few programs were in on Darkwa late. But Penn State really made a big push, and he visited last weekend. Big guy at 6-5, 260. But the step up in competition will be significant. He’ll be a project for defensive line coach Sean Spencer.
