Penn State Football Spring Practice: Derek Moye Out For Remainder Of Spring Practice

The Pittsburgh Post Gazette is reporting that Penn State starting wide receiver Derek Moye will miss the remainder of spring practice with concussions.

As had been previously reported, Moye's spot in the starting lineup is one of the strongest, so keeping him out of spring practice is fine with me. He has roughly five months to get back to healthy. And as many Pittsburgh fans know, you don't want to mess with concussions and concussion-like symptoms.

In other spring football news, Penn State will once again be hosting numerous recruits, including many highly rated prospects, this weekend in Happy Valley.

Penn State will play host to roughly 15 prospects on Saturday including five-star defensive tackle Jarron Jones, four-star linebacker James Ross, four-star defensive tackle Jamil Pollard and four-star offensive tackle Patrick DeStefano.

I wouldn't expect any of the highly rated players to commit on this trip, but there will also be some players visiting who don't have an offer, and predicting their moves isn't as easy.

Two recruits visiting that don’t have Penn State offers now but could possibly land one down the road are receiver Anthony Nash from West Chester (Pa.) Baynard Rustin, and quarterback Brian Blackburn of Detroit (Mich.) Crockett.

With the Blue-White Weekend looming, Penn State fans are anxious to see who will be the next recruit to join the growing Class of 2012.
