Hackenberg impressed at Penn State

This weekend Penn State played host to two of the top quarterbacks from the state of Virginia.

Ryan Burns and Christian Hackenberg were both in Happy Valley over the weekend. Both are members of the Rivals250 and considered among the top quarterbacks in the junior class.

Burns has already said the trip helped the Lions' chances with him.

Hackenberg is now saying the same thing upon returning home.

"They were already high on my list and you could say they're still up there," Hackenberg explained.

"It was a great visit. We got a lot accomplished. I got to talk to Coach O'Brien and I sat down with him for about an hour. He was a really impressive guyI got to know more about the school and what he's about. I listened to his plan for the program. It was really productive. I'm definitely still going to be looking at them after that."

The Fork Union signal caller will be visiting Miami from March 2-4 and then South Carolina March 15-16.

He said those will be the last two trips he takes this spring. He will visit some schools over the summer but hasn't set those plans up yet.
