Two more names to add to the lengthy list of schools with speculation a-circling regarding their potential incoming Penn State transfers: Texas and Florida State.
The Horns have reportedly been contacted by all-around legman and Texas native Anthony Fera, who was both a candidate for the Ray Guy and a semifinalist for the Lou Groza last year. He was excellent on field goals, ranking No. 17 in the country in accuracy among qualified kickers, and a solid punter, placing No. 37 in average yardage.
Tomahawk Nation eyes Penn State's roster and notes tight end Kevin Haplea was nearly a Noles commit in 2010 and could earn decent playing time if he were to take another trip to Tallahassee. At 6'4, 250 pounds, the junior only has a handful of catches so far in his career, but has posted a touchdown.
Perhaps the good news for Penn State: Big Ten coaches have taken up frowning at the idea of taking PSU players. At Big Ten Media Days, Urban Meyer came out against active poaching, and Bret Bielema, Jerry Kill, and Pat Fitzgerald denied they'd go after Nittany Lions. So far, only new guy Tim Beckman has acknowledged making a conscious effort to take from Penn State.
