Villanova has just offered 2016 PF Dylan Painter (Team Final/Hershey, Pa.).

Painter also will be cutting his list of 25+ schools down to seven later this evening, he tells CoBL.
On such a great day for the program, the new about Painter and Nova makes me a little concerned. I got the impression that if he went anywhere besides PSU, it'd be Nova.
2014 PSU #87 (3 commits) Pitt #95 (3)
2015 PSU #42 (3) Pitt #73 (2)
2016 PSU #7 (3) Pitt #48 (1)
The class calculator on 247 Sports has a score of 46.63 if you add in Painter and Stevens. I'd bet Painter gets a bump in ratings, therefore a bump in that score too.
Hate to be the downer, but...November can't come soon enough, glad we have his verbal. This could turn out to be a special class.
Yes, if Carr and Bostick can convince Stevens and Painter to join them, wow. That could be a top 10 class at the end of the cycle, not just now.
If Stevens and Painter join (OMG YES), then it wouldn't be a Top 10 class. It'd be around 20th according to the class calculator on 247 and comparing that score to previous recruiting class rankings on 247... still that's REALLY good for us and what we need to be competing for NCAA bids.
Just to avoid clogging the Recruiting thread, here we can discuss a huge commitment for Pat Chambers and his staff.

Penn State fans, rejoice--Tony Carr will be a Nittany Lion: http://www.cityofbasketballlove.com/news_article/show/539960?referrer_id=1599966 …
“I believe I can go there and change the whole landscape, with guys like Nazeer Bostick and Josh Reaves and Mike watkins and Joe Hampton,” Carr said. “I feel like we can change the whole school around make history up there and be special.”
November can't come soon enough, glad we have his verbal. This could turn out to be a special class.
Expected Nazeer to be there, but a bit of a surprise with Watkins in attendance. Very excited! Can't believe we never created a Tone Carr topic like we did with Jeter and that never approached the replies record. Such a wasted opportunity.
Even though I realize Carr is a tremendous get and the #1 player in the state, I still am not quite sure about just the level of player we'd be getting....
Hope someone really breaks down what he does so well, or how he compares to getting a shep garner or josh reaves...
Scout, seems consensus view:
A long, wiry guard, Carr has grown to 6-foot-4 so clearly has good size for the point guard position. He’s quick and has a terrific handle. At the high school level, he doesn’t have any problems breaking down defenders and getting into the paint. He’s also good in transition, has impressive vision and can really pass the ball. His size, speed and ability to run the point guard standout.

But instead, we have someone who is trying to dodge the issue to avoid having being the one without a chair when the music stops,
This was his testimony at the grand jury. Every Penn Stater's actions before the grand jury suggest that they didn't think anyone was in any trouble at all but Sandusky, and they didn't need to worry about any blowback. It was only after the presentment that the idea of Penn State blowing a chance to catch the guy - and much later, the idea that they conspired to cover it up - came up. If he had said that after the explosion, maybe. But at that point he was just recalling what they seem to see as a non-incident.
They did not think there would be any blowback ?!?!?!
....may I refer you to the very first pair of posts in this thread.
tjb, you seem to have a fixed and opinion on this, and do not want to budge.
Are you telling me that Schultz was testifying to a GRAND JURY about Sandusky, relating to a child rape in 2002 that was reported to him, yet went no further, and he did not think that he was going to be in the crosshairs ?!?!?
You must think these guys are either naive or just plain stupid.
QuoteThis tweet is from 6/30. Did anyone commit that day?
June 30th is the day that Terrence Samuel committed.
Chambers usually also tweets that when "it's happening" and I haven't seen him tweet that in a while. I don't think it's happening these past 2 times. Sorry guys.
Don't be silly. These are the home and home series with schools like Pitt. We should have these games anyway.
What happens AFTER this 4 game series ends! I do NOT think continuing the series would be a good idea.
IF the league goes to a 9 game conference schedule the HC should have maximum scheduling flexibility! No silly Big 5 requirement!!
The HC should be able to schedule 3 home cupcakes if he thinks it's in the best interest of his team!!
Is not the league going to a 9 game conference schedule??
I think the Big 5 non conference requirement is out of line!!!
I do football too.......,
P.S. Bottom dwelling Big 5 schools will now be in great demand and will be able to name their price!
You'll still need your cord for Roku and Chromecast though.
Conspiracy theories aside, that report is chilling.
Given the amount of publicity this case has received, and the stature of Sandusky at the time it was filed, isn't it most likely that someone would know if a report had actually been filed, and that they would have come forward, no? Unless they are all dead, or in on it. Surely Curley's lawyer would have sent out a signal?
