Two-way lineman from New Jersey commits to Penn State

Jerry DiPaola


Anthony Alosi attended Penn State’s victory against Northwestern last week at Beaver Stadium.

When the Nittany Lions offered him a football scholarship six days later, he made a verbal commitment almost immediately.

Alosi, a 6-foot-6, 288-pound two-way lineman at the Hun School of Princeton, N.J., became the fifth member of the Class of 2011 to commit to Penn State and the first since July. He also had an offer from Connecticut.

“Penn State was his dream school from the start,” said Hun coach Dave Dudeck, who added his prep school has sent 83 players to Division I-A or I-AA universities in the past 12 years.

“He went to the Northwestern game (at Beaver Stadium) and loved it. They offered him a scholarship Friday and he accepted Friday night.”

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
