07:16 AM ET 06.27 | Make it an even dozen for Bill O'Brien this offseason in Happy Valley. Penn State received a 12th verbal commitment Wednesday when Maryland cornerback Troy Vincent Jr. pledged to sign with the Nittany Lions next February. Vincent is the son of former Pro Bowl cornerback Troy Vincent. He had scholarship offers from a number of schools, including Notre Dame and Michigan. Vincent's commitment bolstered a class that has received high marks from recruiting analysts even though Penn State is not allowed to sign more than 15 players to its 2014 recruiting class because of NCAA sanctions. The 5-foot-10, 181-pounder plays at the Gilman School in Baltimore.

After this season, Penn State will be half way through the 4 year post season ban. Kids coming in 2014 will only have two years without a chance for a CCG or other post season game. With the reduced scholarships and total roster limits kicking in now, (15/65) and scheduled to last 5 years, playing time should be availabe. I can see a good player going there in part because of these factors.

Do I know you?

That's exactly what I was wondering when I posted my post.

Couldn't tell if maybe you were one of the regulars around here that just changed their avi and name. Wasn't trying to be a jackwagon or anything.

Minor point: the 65 technically kicks in next year, lasting 4. This year, they can have more than that but PSU's relatively small senior class this year means the team is operating in the 64-67 scholly range with some of those given free to preferred walk-ons for one year. They're anticipating the drop off so they don't have to cut scholly kids.

Good info!!!! Thanks!! :-)

Thjere is no way this kid picks Penn State over the Irish unless he was a VERY strong lean to PSU from the beginning.

It's possible.

GR is first to post, but many here present could hope that you are the reincarnation of a former FN CFB regular who was/is the penultimate PSU fan.
