Happy Valley commitments

Penn State landed three recruits when two high school seniors and one junior committed to the Nittany Lions today during visits, according to the Web site fightonstate.com.

Shawney Kersey, a 6-foot-2, 190-pound wide receiver from Woodbury, N.J. gave Penn State his pledge earlier in the day. John Urschel, a 6-3, 263-pound guard from Buffalo, was the next Class of 2009 recruit to select the Lions.

With signing day a few weeks away, Penn State now has 25 commitments for next year’s class.

Sandwiched in between Kersey and Urschal was Paul Jones, a blue chip quarterback from McKees Rocks, Pa. The 6-3, 206-pound prospect is the Lions’ second recruit for the Class of 2010.

A month ago, Penn State was in serious need of scholarship quarterbacks. But with senior Kevin Newsome’s commitment last month and Jones now on board, the Lions have addressed an area that was once a concern.
