Video: Christian Hackenberg on O'Brien & NFL

Penn State commitment Christian Hackenberg is confident that Bill O'Brien will not take an NFL job, he told ESPN Sunday.

Earlier Sunday, ESPN's Chris Mortensen reported that O'Brien was a candidate for several NFL jobs.

O'Brien, 43, won the Big Ten Coach of the Year Award for 2012, as he guided the sanction-riddled Nittany Lions to an impressive eight-win season. Previously, O'Brien was the offensive coordinator for the New England Patriots.

Penn State Loses Top Recruit Dorian Johnson

Dorian Johnson, a four-star offensive tackle out of Belle Vernon High (Penn.), informed Penn State head coach Bill O'Brien on Tuesday that he's decided to reopen his recruitment, reports Jeremy Sellew of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review.

Johnson, who affirmed his commitment last month through his high school coach, told the paper that he's now interested in Pittsburgh, Ohio State and Virginia Tech. His decision is a tough blow for the Nittany Lions, who have now lost five members of their Class of 2013 as well as nine transfers since the NCAA announced sanctions against the program.

Will Fuller, a three-star wide receiver from Philadelphia, decommitted from PSU in favor of Notre Dame last weekend, while Zach Bradshaw, a three-star outside linebacker recruit from Maryland, reopened his recruitment earlier Tuesday. But Johnson's decision hurts the most, as he was the team's third-highest rated recruit. Penn State's Class of 2013 now stands at just nine players.

Penn State Football Recruiting: Zach Bradshaw Decommits

Zach Bradshaw, an outside linebacker recruit, decommitted from Penn State Tuesday according to multiple reports.

Bradshaw is the third player to decommit from the Nittany Lions since massive NCAA sanctions were announced, and the fourth since the release of the Freeh Report. PSU has lost four total recruits recently in addition to nine transfers.

Out of Damascus (Md.) High School, Bradshaw is a three-star recruit. He also holds offers from Virginia, Michigan State and Northwestern, among others. And he apparently has ties to Michigan State.
