Penn State women's basketball's late rally falls short against Iowa

Tony Carr splits Iowa defenders for 2 of his 16 points in 82-58 win over Iowa on Saturday at the Jordan Center

Today is the traditional National Letter of Intent signing day for major college football, and while the three-day early signing period held for the first time in December has squashed most of the mystery about the Nittany Lions' 2018 recruiting class, there is still room for head coach James Franklin to add to the group.

The class is heavier on defense than offense, which is quite a thing to say about a class that has two five-star skill players.

Both teams shot poorly from three - though Penn State led by shooting 30%, it wouldn't make too much of a difference on the scoreboard.

Carter jumped into No. 24 on the career assist charts with a team-best four assists, moving her career total to 227 and passing Carol Fultz (224; 1981-84).

Senior grad transfer Sean Obi has been a foul machine as of late and committed three fouls in just ten minutes of game action to go along with two rebounds.

Cam Smith of USA Today noted Walker made the decision official after he narrowed his list of finalists to six schools-Penn State, Ohio State, Virginia Tech, Rutgers, Maryland and North Carolina-back last April. The Waldorf., Md., product is the No. 65 overall prospect in the 247Sports composite ratings, and the No. 6 offensive tackle in the country.

Penn State, at the moment, is only looking up at Ohio State in the Big Ten.

Maryland's injury bug has severely hindered the team's success this year, but this team continues to fight hard and remain close in many games recently. Typically defensive tackles and offensive linemen are among the last to see the field in their recruiting classes since the bulking up and increased strength required to play those positions can't happen over night.

"We've got some other guys that I'm not allowed to talk about that we're really excited about coming in, as well and it's going to be an open competition", Franklin said.

"You watch his tape, and he's got tremendous athleticism and length", Franklin said of Walker. "I think you guys also know that we'd like to have a guy handle the kickoff and another guy handle field goal".

The nastiness along the defensive line, especially along the interior, likely won't come right away from this class.

Another major addition in this class is on the coaching side.

"It's pretty cool because I saw people predicting it would take 10 years to get where they are now".

In addition to Enis, the Lions did miss out on one other recruit: Harrisburg receiver Shaquon Anderson-Butts, a Lion commit for several months, signed with a junior college, Iowa Western, presumably for academic reasons.
