2012 ATH recaps Penn State trip

Penn State is just one of the schools that is very high on Greg Garmon, a talented Pennsylvania athlete from the Class of 2012.

Though no schools have extended verbal offers yet the 6-foot-2, 200-pound versatile athlete has attracted a good amount of attention.

Garmon was at Penn State over the weekend for the Nittany Lions' game against Temple, which turned out to be a 22-13 win for the home team.

"It was really nice," he recalled. "I got to meet a lot of their coaches and I talked to the running backs coach a lot. It was a really nice experience."

Garmon will be visiting another school within the next month.

"In a couple of weeks I'll be going down to North Carolina. They want me to come down and see some things, like the campus and stuff. I'll be down there for that."

That might not be set in stone yet as Garmon said he wasn't sure what opponent the Tar Heels would be taking on while he is in town.

Perhaps not surprisingly Penn State and North Carolina are two of the three schools near the top of Garmon's list.

"I really like North Carolina, Pitt and Penn State," he said. "Those are my three favorites right now.

"With UNC I really like their coaching staff. Over the summer when I was there they gave me a tour around campus and I really liked that a lot. The weather was pretty nice, too.

"Pitt's coaching staff is hilarious. They're so open about everything. I really like that about them.

"I just like Penn State's fan base and their coaching staff a lot. Their student section is crazy. That's something I really like about them."

Each of those schools are recruiting him as a running back, though Garmon also lines up at cornerback. He is a kick returner on special teams.

In four games so far Garmon has carried the ball about 55 times, so he is seeing a good deal of action on offense.

He has also been in contact with Rutgers, Ohio State, Wisconsin and Iowa.
