The Class of 2015: PSR Top 25. Headlined by Central Valley playmaker Jordan Whitehead, Pennsylvania's Class of 2015 have made plans to attend 13 different programs.

It was a banner recruiting year, at least on paper, for Penn State coach James Franklin. Ten of PSR's top 25 seniors are headed to Penn State.

Jordan Whitehead is a very big deal for Pitt football. The Central Valley cornerback, who committed to Pitt in October, is the No. 1 prospect in Pennsylvania by and a consensus four-star recruit.

So it would also be a very big deal if Pitt were to lose him.

Bill Cherpak misses the way it used to be. Back in the 80’s, when the current Thomas Jefferson High School coach was a player at Steel Valley, the recruiting process wasn’t publicized. It was low-key compared to the present.

“When I was getting recruited the rules were much different. There were no early offers,” said Cherpak, who went on to play at Pitt.
