When the recruiting race for the Class of 2011 began in earnest last summer, Penn State appeared to be stuck in the starting gate. The Nittany Lions had only four oral commitments as of mid-October. They appeared to have waited much longer than other schools to offer scholarships, and there was the persistent question of whether then-83-year-old coach Joe Paterno was more of a hindrance to recruiting than a help. But the Lions, capitalizing on the coaching change at Pittsburgh while loading up at defensive end and along the offensive line, used a late closing kick to overtake some of their Big Ten rivals as national signing day arrives on Wednesday.

Motivated by watching his sibling, Kenny Boynton Jr. gave basketball a try in the sixth grade. "I was always around it," Boynton said of watching his older brother, Deondre, play in a church league. "I used to go outside every day. We got an outside goal, and I used to shoot every day. By the ninth grade, I knew my game had gotten a little better. " A little better is an understatement. Now a senior-to-be at American Heritage High (Fla.), Boynton is one of the headliners at the Reebok All-American Camp at Philadelphia University.

Brandon Bell said he wasn't much of a Penn State football fan as a youngster. But he always knew one thing about the Nittany Lions.

Concerned Temple football fans need to chill, according to one recruiting analyst. It's too early to panic because Temple doesn't have a commitment for the Class of 2013, said Bob Lichtenfels, the East regional manager for Scout.com recruiting service. Judging by last summer, Lichtenfels may be on to something. Temple didn't get its first commitment for the Class of 2012 until May 27, 2011. By July 11, the Owls had secured 21. But some Temple fans believe the expectations are now higher, considering the team is going into the Big East Conference.

Going into his junior season of high school, Michael Gilchrist is regarded as the nation's top college basketball prospect. Many believe the Somerdale resident's college of choice is Kentucky.

In April, Calipari became the head coach at Kentucky. And since Gilchrist's uncle, William Wesley, and Calipari are close friends, he's a lock to sign with Kentucky, right?

When Penn State fans heard Bill O'Brien say he would complete his duties with the New England Patriots before he moved full-time into the head coach's office, they thought this would put the Nittany Lions at a disadvantage with undecided high school recruits. But what they found out was that television loves a good story, and the CBS announcers made frequent mentions of O'Brien, the Patriots' offensive coordinator, and his new job at Penn State during Saturday night's telecast of the AFC divisional playoff between New England and Denver.

It's a warmer-than-normal November Saturday afternoon in Philadelphia. The Temple Owls are gathered at beautiful Lincoln Financial Field to play Cincinnati in a game that could have huge Big East Conference implications. But if averages hold up, there will be fewer than 24,000 fans inside a 69,000-seat stadium. And what kind of scene is that for a team expecting different results in its second go-round in the Big East? Sunday marks Temple's first official day back in the conference as a football member after five years as a football-only member of the Mid-American Conference.

CAMP HILL, Pa. - Adam Breneman didn't need to mull his decision any longer. One school had all he needed. On Friday night in a crowded Cedar Cliff High School gym, Breneman, the top-rated tight end in the Class of 2013, announced his oral commitment to play at Penn State. The five-star recruit's pledge is a major triumph for new coach Bill O'Brien, who had already secured three four-star recruits for next year's class. Breneman is the highest-ranked recruit to commit to Penn State since 2006, according to Rivals.com.
