Penn State recruits sticking by their commitments

By Tom Fornelli | Staff Writer

At least six Penn State recruits plan on sticking by their commitments despite the recent NCAA sanctions against the school.

The group got together with Penn State coach Bill O'Brien on Saturday, and after their meeting they've all decided that they're going to stay.

"Yes, we are all one hundred percent committed," said tight end Adam Breneman, a five-star recruit out of Champ Hill, Pa.

The we Breneman referred to are wide receiver Will Fuller, quarterback Christian Hackenberg, defensive lineman Garrett Sickels, and offensive linemen Brendan Mahon and Andrew Nelson.

Given the scholarship restrictions and postseason ban at Penn State, there have been a lot of questions about whether or not Bill O'Brien would be able to recruit good players to State College.

As part of the NCAA penalties Penn State is only allowed to offer 15 scholarships a year to incoming freshmen. Non-sanctioned schools are allowed to hand out 25, which puts Penn State at an obvious disadvantage.

One that Bill O'Brien isn't having any trouble dealing with at the moment.
