Penn State recruit Geno Thorpe made quite an impression at the Mary Kline Classic, an all-star basketball event Sunday at Philadelphia University.
Thorpe, a senior combination guard at Shaler Area High near Pittsburgh, was named MVP of the senior game after he scored 20 points.
The 6-foot-4 Thorpe also impressed a small contingent of Penn State fans with a few flashy finishes at the rim.
The basketball classic, run by 19-year-old recruiting analyst Alex Kline, was a fund-raiser for cancer research. Kline assembled several of the country's top high school basketball prospects.
Junior Jared Nickens, a 6-6 forward at the Westtown School, excelled in the all-star game for underclassmen. He finished with 13 points.
