Nittany Lion recruiting nuts know Glenn Carson is the only linebacker in the recently-signed, 27-member class of 2009.
And he’s got lots of potential. He’s a four-star talent who also had scholarship offers from Notre Dame, Stanford, Boston College, North Carolina State, Maryland and Rutgers.
He’s big enough (6-foot-3, 220 pounds) and skilled enough to become another great one at Linebacker U.
But he’s also pretty good at a second sport: wrestling.
The New Jersey kid (Southern Regional High) finished second in the state the past two years at 215 pounds and just claimed his third-straight Region 6 title. And he dominated again, pinning his opponent in just 1:04.
So now he will get a third shot at that state title.
