Penn State Recruiting: Skyler Mornhinweg, Son Of Eagles Coordinator To Commit To Nittany Lions

The IInquirer's Jeff McLane is reporting that Skyler Mornhinweg, one of the highest rated QB prospects in the country and the son of Eagles offensive coordinator (and noted QB guru) Marty Mornhinweg, will reportedly commit to Penn State for 2012. Only six months ago, it was reported that Mornhinweg had committed to Stanford to replace Andrew Luck, but apparently he has had a change of heart and will stay closer to his current home.

The 6-3, 220 pound St Joseph's prep standout says that Jim Harbaugh's departure from Stanford is what made him rethink his commitment.

"Coach Harbaugh was the main reason for me going to Stanford, besides the great academics, and after he left, I want to make sure that I’m making the best choice for myself," Skyler said. "I’m deciding to step back and take a look at all my options."

Stanford's loss would certainly be Penn State's gain as Mornhinweg has been recruited by a slew of major college programs. Stanford, Miami, Alabama, Boston College, Notre Dame, Wisconsin, Arkansas, Southern Methodist, Northwestern, Florida State, Illinois and Penn State have all offered him scholarships or expressed interest.
