Big New Jersey prospect commits to Penn State

Big New Jersey prospect commits to Penn Stateā€

Recruiting never stops, and if you take a day off, you fall behind. The game begins at 6 p.m. ET on ESPN2.

Tyreke Smith, also a four-star DE from Cleveland, announced before the Under Armour game that he will attend Ohio State.

Penn State swept the Most Outstanding Wrestler-Gregorian Award duo as Shakur Rasheed was voted Most Outstanding by media and coaches in the 197-pound weight class, and Jason Nolf had the most pins in the least amount of time over the duration of the tournament in the 157-pound bracket. Smith and Oweh were both trending toward Penn State last month, and the Lions signed Parsons - who will start his career at linebacker - on December 20.

It's been a tougher battle for the Buckeyes than with most in-state players. For much of 2017 - especially in the fall - it's looked as though the Nittany Lions led for Smith, giving Ohio State fans plenty of reason to worry. He last visited State College in November.

Penn State is reportedly vying with Ohio State and Virginia Tech for Walker. The pass rusher named Penn State his leader in the days leading up to the early signing period.

"It was family, it felt like the right thing to do, and we're winning it all next year", Oweh said on ESPN.

Oweh didn't play high school football until 2016 and is considered a four-star prospect in the 247 Sports Composite.

Smith is the fourth Northeast Ohio product in this class to commit to a Big Ten school, with Chardon's Chase Kline and St. Edward's Michael Dowell both heading to Michigan State and Avon's Jimmy McKenna choosing Purdue.

Though it's less certain than Smith's decision, which feels clear cut, most signs point to Oweh ending up at Penn State.
