QB Christian Hackenberg of Fork Union, VA makes his first junior day visit later this month when he goes to Penn State on the 18th. Hackenberg recently picked up offers from Penn State and South Florida. Hackenberg said he used to live in Pennsylvania but otherwise has no ties to Penn State.
He also has offers from USC, Tennessee, Rutgers, Virginia, Alabama, Connecticut and Miami. This spring Hackenberg plans to visit USC, Miami, Alabama and Tennessee. He talked with Gamecock recruiter GA Mangus last Sunday. “He just wants to get me down there and see the campus,” said Hackenberg who continues to remain open about his decision.
“When I get that gut feeling,” he said about when he wants to decide. “Ideally, this summer, but it comes down to that gut feeling and I’m positive about it.”
