Three-star athlete Canaan Severin (Marlboro, Mass./Worcester Academy), who has Penn State in his final five, could be the next prospect to be part of the Massachusetts to Penn State pipeline.

Two of the top prospects from Massachusetts -- four-star linebacker Camren Williams and three-star cornerback Armani Reeves (West Roxbury, Mass./Catholic Memorial) -- have already committed to Penn State.

"It would definitely be cool to complete that Mass. trifecta," said Severin. "We played together in the Rutgers 7 on 7. They want me to come. Penn State has so much tradition."
