Adrian Amos commits to Penn State

Penn State added Towson(Md.)/Calvert Hall safety Adrian Amos, who announced his decision today in Baltimore, to round out the Nittany Lions' 2011 recruiting class.

The 6-foot-1, 200-pound Amos was originally commited to play for UConn, but pulled his verbal when Randy Edsall left the program to take over at Maryland. The decision today came down to Penn State, UConn, and West Virginia. Amos is capable of playing both receiver and safety/corner, but is likely to stay on the defensive side of the ball, at least initially, in Happy Valley.

Yesterday, the Hartford Courant's Desmond Conner reported that Amos would commit to Penn State, though it wasn't picked up or immediately confirmed by any of the recruiting services. Today things were different, as I'm sure some of the big shot recruitniks kept on digging to find out the what Conner already reported, and Penn State quickly emerged as the "likely" destination for the Maryland prospect.

We'll have some sort of recruiting season wrap up at some point, either today or tomorrow. But other than that, it's on to (ugh!) 2012!
