With signing day coming tomorrow, it's not a huge surprise that Patrick Chambers and Penn State would hear news about a recruit.
However, it was a bit of a surprise that the news was regarding a 2013 prospect.
Tuesday morning, Pittsburgh (Pa.) Shaler point guard Geno Thorpe announced for the Nittany Lions.
"I thought it was the best decision for me and my family," Thorpe told Rivals.com. "Pat Chambers is a great coach with a good staff and they are looking to turn that program around.
"I want to be a part of that."
Standing 6-foot-2 or 6-3, Thorpe is an athletic floor general who can score and is developing as a playmaker.
When he gets to Penn State, he sees his role as pretty clearly defined.
"A point guard," said Thorpe. "Just getting others involved as well as being a scoring impact."
