College football recruiting has never been more of a public spectacle than it is now in the age of social media, but that certainly works both ways. While fans are all over recruits, trying to draw them to their favorite programs, many recruits also seem to enjoy playing the game.
2016 four-star defensive end Shane Simmons has offers from all over the country, but may have tipped his hand a bit with a tweet this afternoon. After camping at Penn State on Sunday, and taking an unofficial visit to Ohio State today, he tweeted this split picture of himself with both jerseys on.

Naturally that has fans all riled up on Twitter. Based on his replies, Penn State supporters seem more excited about it.
According to 247Sports, Simmons has a Penn State offer, but is yet to receive one from Ohio State, although that could change while he’s in Columbus. He also has major interest in Florida State, Alabama, Tennessee, Wisconsin, and other powerhouse programs.
