Penn State is trying to swoop in late and take 2017 recruit Joshua Paschal away from Kentucky.
Paschal is a 6-foot-4, 255-pound defensive lineman from Olney, Md. He took an official visit to Penn State over the weekend.
Here is an update from the Herald-Leader:
Rivals.com analyst Adam Friedman, who started covering Paschal during the summer before the star recruit’s freshman year of high school, spoke to Paschal’s father about the visit on Tuesday morning, and the Nittany Lions remain in the mix.
“Every kid should be able to take all their visits,” Friedman told the Herald-Leader on Tuesday. “The visits are fun, and it’s important to do your research and make sure you’re looking at all of your options. Josh certainly did that. He knows a lot of people up there, on the coaching staff and the players. He had a good time. His dad really got the lay of the land. He got to sit with the coaching staff a lot and hear what they said. He certainly liked it up there.”
Rivals.com ranks Paschal as the No. 10 strongside defensive end in the 2017 class.
