3-Star Offensive Lineman Commits to Penn State

by on November 08, 2019 8:27 PM

Penn State football landed another verbal commitment on Friday night when three-star offensive tackle Jimmy Christ made his pledge to James Franklin’s program.

Christ previously committed to the University of Virginia on April 30, but he decommitted from the Cavaliers’ program on Friday afternoon. Head coach James Franklin hinted at a new commitment joining the fold at his weekly coach’s show at Primanti Bros. in downtown State College and said that an announcement was potentially coming on Monday.

That timeline, however, moved along much quicker than expected, and Christ is now the 28th verbal pledge in Penn State’s recruiting class of 2020. He’s one of seven offensive linemen in James Franklin’s current recruiting class, joining a group headlined by Olu Fashanu.

Christ plays his high school ball at Dominion High School in of Sterling, Va. The Dominion Titans are 4-6 this season, and the 6-foot-7, 285-pounder is a starting tackle for the team.

Before Friday night, Penn State's most recent commitment had come from Liam Clifford — the younger brother of starting quarterback Sean Clifford — on Oct. 20. A day earlier Penn State picked up a commitment from Harrisburg lineman Nate Bruce for the 2021 recruiting class.
