Penn State Football: Jenkins And Wimbush Give Franklin And Staff Two Massive Commitments
As the first full day of Penn State's coaches caravan came to a close on Tuesday in Hershey, James Franklin could likely be found dancing somewhere in the hallways of the Hershey Lodge.
The cause for celebration? Four-star prospects Sterling Jenkins and Brandon Wimbush both gave their verbal commitments to Penn State Tuesday evening. The two commitments help improve what is already one of the best recruiting classes in Penn State history.
At 6-feet-8 inches and 305 pounds, Jenkins gives Penn State a massive body on the offensive line. He's been a Penn State target for over a year. Jenkins is rated the best prospect in the state of Pennsylvania for the 2015 class by many recruiting services and could have NFL potential already according to some analysts. The Pittsburgh native took Penn State over Ohio State.
Following Jenkins' announcement, the No. 6 rated quarterback in the 2015 class gave Penn State his verbal commitment. Brandon Wimbush, a Jersey City native selected James Franklin and his staff over Ohio State and Miami.
Wimbush announced his commitment through Bleacher Report.
The commitments give Penn State 15 verbals for the 2015 class with nine of those rated at the four-star level. Penn State also boasts four of the top seven players from Pennsylvania.
