Jacques Rickerson was expected to take an official visit to Penn State this past weekend for the Nittany Lions big match up with Ohio State. Rickerson however was informed, he would not be making the trip.
"I was supposed to go to Penn State. They called and basically told us not to come. I don't know, really what happened. I guess they felt they needed to focus on their game. Thats fine, but I will not be going back to Penn State."
While it is bad news for Penn State, the cancellation increases Clemson's chances with Rickerson. Rickerson says two schools standout to him.
"Clemson and West Virginia are my top two. I know I will make visits to both schools. Last year, they had corners get drafted pretty high. I would have a chance to play early at both schools looking at their depth charts."
Rickerson is being recruited by Dabo Swinney.
"Coach Swinney is one of my favorite people to talk to. He has consistently called and written me. He is very good at what he does. I told him I want to come up for the Florida State game. It should be a good game with a lot of fans, so I want to be there."
