Six of Penn State's top 2013 recruits, including quarterback Christian Hackenberg and tight end Adam Breneman, visited the campus Saturday and reaffirmed their commitments to playing for the Nittany Lions.
Breneman tweeted Saturday afternoon, "100% committed to Penn State and Coach O'Brien. Love these guys."
Hackenberg tweeted, "Love this 2013 class."
The other four players who visited Saturday and maintain their commitments are defensive end Garrett Sickels, offensive lineman Brendan Mahon, receiver Will Fuller and offensive tackle Andrew Nelson.
Hackenberg, Breneman, Sickels and Mahon are four-star recruits, according to Rivals.com, while Fuller and Nelson are three stars.
Breneman has remained vocal with his commitment on Twitter throughout the past few weeks.
Saturday he wrote, "We're going to do something a lot bigger than just win bowl games. That's a promise. Get on board #PSU nation."
Silent on Silas
There were no updates Saturday on running back Silas Redd, who reportedly is visiting USC for a possible transfer.
The Redd decision is expected by Monday, ESPN has reported.
Penn State athletic director Dave Joyner said Friday he is working out the details with Wisconsin AD Barry Alvarez to have the Lions-Badgers season-ending games be for a trophy. The trophy hasn't yet been designed, and there's still no name for it yet.
Dickie V rants
Famed college basketball analyst Dick Vitale weighed in on the Penn State situation Saturday when he sent out a tweet blasting Illinois for recruiting Lion players for transfers.
Vitale wrote, "The way ILLINI went after PSU players- did not break any rules- but TOTALLY CLASSLESS- on campus =VULTURES- same conf =WOW NO RESPECT."
