A note to future Penn State opponents, offensive coordinator Galen Hall might be using a lot of two tight end sets in the future. Well, that is if the Nittany Lions' recruiting efforts in the class of 2012 are any indication. 

Just a day after picking up their third commitment for the upcoming class in tight end Brent Wilkerson, McKeesport (Pa.) tight end Jesse James committed to Penn State Monday morning. 

"He just found a comfort level with this opportunity," James' head coach, Pat Monroe, told the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. 

Like Wilkerson, the 6-foot-8, 250 pound James could also end up playing defensive end for the Nittany Lions. He caught 34 passes for 463 yards as a junior last season.
