(WSCR) According to a published report, former Penn State defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky, who was arrested over the weekend on more than 40 counts of child sexual abuse, had been recruiting for Penn State football as recently as this past spring.
Adam Ah Ching, a senior linebacker at Greer High School in South Carolina, said that Sandusky actually visited him this past season as a recruiting ploy.
“He came to my last spring game going into my senior season. He liked how I moved, laterally, and how gifted I am,” said Ah Ching, ranked last year by ESPNU as the 26th linebacker prospect in the country.
Since the allegations surfaced, however, Ah Ching has changed his mind about Penn State.
“It’s very devastating to have a top-tiered program and have them drop like that,” said Ah Ching. “That really did play a big impact on where I wanted to go.
“All these recruits are decommiting because of that. It’s sad, depressing and devastating.”
