Rejoice! Kelly Green Can Return...But When?

EaglesPicture: Via @Eagles/Twitter

Uni geeks such as I rejoiced when it was announced that the NFL would eliminate the “one shell” rule allowing for the return of alternate helmets and throwback uniforms.  Images of Bucco Bruce, Pat the Patriot, and the beloved Kelly green Eagles set danced through my mind like a kid thinking of what Santa is bringing to the house on Christmas morning. But unbridled joy was quickly squashed like a finding out your parents were really Santa.

According to Pro Football Talk, NFL teams can use an alternate helmet now that the “one shell” rule has been changed however the “notice date” for teams to make uniform changes for the 2022 season has passed.  Teams will be allowed to wear an alternate helmet color, but they won’t be able to have a complete new set of uniforms for the season. 

Major bummer. So, what does this mean for the Eagles?

Alan Zemaitis Returns to Penn State

 

Penn State football announced that former star defensive back Alan Zemaitis will be joining the Nittany Lions staff as an assistant recruiting coordinator.  Zemaitis confirmed the move on Twitter.

Zemaitis was an extremely popular player during his time in State College.  He was the captain of the 2005 Orange Bowl team, an All-American selection in 2005, and a three-time All Big Ten selection.  Zemaitis was also a two-time semifinalist for the Jim Thorpe Award presented annually to college football’s best defensive back. 

Zemaitis played professionally in the NFL and CFL however his career was cut short due to shoulder injuries. 

His most recent stop on the coaching circuit was at Division III Susquehanna University where he was the special teams coordinator/defensive backs coach. He was also responsible for recruiting northern New Jersey, parts of Pennsylvania, and parts of Maryland.

Top 100 QB Drew Allar Commits to Penn State

 

Penn State has started the week off with a big win on the recruiting trail landing a four-star quarterback.  Medina (Ohio) QB Drew Allar announced his commitment to Penn State via Twitter on Monday morning. 

Allar is ranked #89 overall in 247Sports Top247 rankings and the fifth ranked pro-style quarterback in the country according to the recruiting service.  Standing 6’5 and weighing 225 pounds, Allar is built like a prototypical pro-style quarterback however he is deceptively athletic. 

 

National recruiting analyst Allen Trieu projects Allar  as an early college starter with the potential to play on Sunday.  Trieu compares him to Buffalo’s Josh Allen.

Allar becomes the second four-star quarterback commit for the Nittany Lions in the 2022 recruiting cycle.  York (PA) four-star QB Beau Pribula committed to the program last August. Allar boasted 22 offers from other FBS programs including offers from Notre Dame, Michigan, Iowa, and Washington. 

Penn State is currently ranked fifth in 247Sports composite rankings trailing only Ohio State (1). National Signing Day is December 15, 2021.


Temple Football Adds Another Defensive Transfer

 

The transfer train continues to roll on for the Temple football program.  The Owls have officially announced the addition of Northwestern cornerback Cameron Ruiz as graduate transfer.  The transfer was first reported on Monday by Ryan Wallen of 247Sports. 

Ruiz is the tenth transfer addition to the Rod Carey’s program this off-season.

The Lake Villa, Illinois native appeared in 28-games for the Wildcats over the past three seasons including 13 starts.  Ruiz had his best season statistically in 2019, his redshirt sophomore season.  He appeared in 11 games (nine starts) and recorded 44 tackles, seven pass breakups, three tackles-for-loss, and one interception.  He had a career-high eight tackles and two tackles-for-loss against Nebraska.

Ruiz was rated the #1 cornerback in the state of Illinois by Scout (now 247 Sports) and was a consensus three-star recruit according to all major recruiting services.

Penn State Closes the 2021 Recruiting Cycle with 21st Ranked Class

 

Penn State head coach James Franklin can take a deep breath.  Traditional National Signing Day is over and perhaps the most unique recruiting cycle in program history is in the books.

The Nittany Lions closed the 2021 recruiting cycle with the 21st ranked class nationally according to 247 Sports composite rankings despite only signing 16 prospects, the fewest in the top 30.  This is notable considering the 2021 cycle saw no official visits, limited in-person interaction due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and a lethargic 0-5 start.

Six of those prospects are composite four-star players including North Senior (Minneapolis, MN) DE Davon Townley who signed on the dotted line at the last moment.

The key to Penn State’s success was recruiting their regional footprint.

Via Fight On State:

“We’ve always taken an approach at recruiting regionally,” Franklin said. “Those things are magnified in years when you can’t get kids on campus. The further kids have to go can create some challenges in years like this. I felt like the staff did a really good job at being flexible and creative and going to some places that we hadn’t typically gone to.”

In addition to the 16 scholarship players, the Nittany Lions are bringing in 10 preferred walk-ons, and five transfers including former Baylor RB John Lovett (Cherokee- Marlton, NJ).
