'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

The commitments keep coming for Penn State — and they keep coming from within the commonwealth.

Two prospects made verbal commitments to the Nittany Lions on Monday, meaning Penn State's Class of 2015 already is six players deep.

Linebacker Jake Cooper from Archbishop Wood High in Warminster and defensive end Ryan Buchholz from Great Valley High in Malvern are the third and fourth recruits from Pennsylvania. The Lions' 2014 class had three in-state players.

Cooper (6-foot-2, 226 pounds) and Buchholz (6-6, 230) are rated three stars by Rivals.com. According to the site, both had more than 10 scholarship offers: Cooper's included Virginia, Georgia Tech and Pitt, and Buchholz had offers from, among others, six Big Ten schools, WVU and Pitt.

Buchholz committed to PSU nine days after his high school teammate, offensive lineman Ryan Bates. Archbishop Wood is the reigning PIAA Class AAA champion.

Neither of the Monday commitments was considered a surprise, except, perhaps, for the timing of them. Only one of Penn State's 25 signees for 2014 had committed by this point last year.

A source confirmed another high-profile, in-state 2015 prospect, (Harrisburg) Bishop McDevitt High running back Andre Robinson, also was on campus Monday. Robinson is a consensus four-star recruit.
