'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.

South Allegheny's 6-foot-8, 246-pound junior tight end Jesse James made a verbal commitment to Penn State this morning.

"He just found a comfort level with this opportunity," South Allegheny coach Pat Monroe said.

James is a two-year starter at both tight end and defensive end for the Gladiators. He was SA's leading receiver a year ago when he caught 34 passes for 463 yards.

James was also a dominant pass-rushing defensive end for the Gladiators the past two years collecting double-digit sacks during the South Allegheny's 2-8 season a year ago.

James was garnering interest from Pitt, Toledo, Maryland among others.

Penn State landed another tight end over the weekend when the Nittany Lions got a commitment from Brent Wilkerson of DeMatha High in Hyattsville, Md, and now have four verbals for the 2012 class.

James was recruited by assistant coach Tom Bradley and tight ends coach Bill Kenney.
