Visitors' List: Big weekend for walk-ons

By Josh Moyer

Penn State will have several commits up for weekend visits, but this might be the most important Sunday of the year when it comes to potential preferred walk-ons.

NittanyNation has confirmed that at least eight players who were extended spots on the team as non-scholarship players will be in Happy Valley for "Run-on Day," which will take place from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Potential walk-ons -- or run-ons, as Bill O'Brien calls them -- will be broken into two groups and will take part in several tours or meetings.

According to recruits, they'll meet with the training staff, coaches and hear about academics. They'll also have lunch together but, due to NCAA rules, recruits will have to pay $10. One prospect said 10 or 11 players received an email with Sunday's itinerary.

NittanyNation has confirmed the attendance of the following players: Notes: OL Evan Galimberti (State College, Pa./State College), who accepted PSU's preferred walk-on offer, said he received an invitation but wasn't yet sure if he'd attend. ... Kicker Chris Gulla (Toms River, N.J./Toms River North), also a committed walk-on, said he could not attend. ... WR Drew Scales (Harrisburg, Pa./Central Dauphin) said he will not be there.
