WVU moving in on PSU's recruiting turf?

With Pitt struggling and Penn State still reeling from unprecedented sanctions, West Virginia has quietly entered the competition for Pennsylvania recruits.

The Nittany Lions have lost more in-state recruits (3) than they still have committed (2), while the Mountaineers now boast four commits from Pennsylvania -- three of whom are top-15 players in the state.

Can PSU still wind up with more Pennsylvania recruits? Will West Virginia become the new top destination for the prospects? And what is Pitt's role here?

ESPN's Jared Shanker takes a closer look at the state of Pennsylvania recruiting.
