No Settling Down Yet

No Settling Down Yet

Virginia-native and top defensive tackle prospect Tim Settle discusses his recruitment process and visit with Penn State.

Scout 5-star recruit Tim Settle certainly has a lot on his plate. The 6'3", 325 pound defensive tackle has been on visit after visit with schools from across the country.

The Virginia-native has offers from schools like Alabama, North Carolina, Tennessee, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Clemson, and Texas, just to name a few.

In early May, the defensive tackle released this list on his Twitter and had everyone in the world of college football talking.



The Southeastern Conference receives quite a bit of hype being known for its football talent, and the defensive tackle has three of them noted it the list above. When asked about the significance of playing in the SEC, Settle noted,"I think all the divisions are the same to me, you know, they are just different."

Just one month later after this tweet and Tennessee at the top, Settle released Clemson had now climbed to his no. 1 spot.



However, time tells all things. Take a good look at number eight on the 5-star's first list because it could very well be a front-runner in the race very soon.



Recently, the class of 2015 prospect took his second visit to Penn State over the weekend and notes he talked a little with James Franklin and his staff.

Check out what Settle had to say about his recruiting process in our exclusive interview below.

During this time for prospects, there are many attributes to consider. One of those things, being uniforms. Universities all over the United States have introduced upgraded versions in several patterns and colors to their teams and spiked fan-bases with dazzling new attire.

I had the opportunity to ask the DT if uniforms played a part in the choosing process. They may not make or break his decision, but he did have some favorites, including Penn State.

"No," chuckled Settle, "but one's that I do like is Oklahoma State and Penn State. Oklahoma State, I just like their colors, Penn State, they're not too flashy, they're just basic."

Scout.com anaylist Michael Clark has noted Settle is a tremendous athelte with good instincts, and his best football is ahead of him.

The defensive tackle said he's looking forward to a great senior season, but that comes last to him announcing.

"That's what I try to tell people, all the offers may seem nice, but you only pick one school."

That one school remains highly anticipated for universities and fans around the country. However, there's no settling down just yet for this class of 2015 prospect.
