Penn State Football: Monroe Latest To Tab Nittany Lions For 2015 Recruiting Class
Penn State added another player to the 2015 recruiting class on Saturday with three-star cornerback Ayron Monroe verbally committing to James Franklin and his staff. That's according to multiple recruiting outlets.
Monroe is a native of Washington, DC and is the 16th member of Penn State's 2015 recruiting class. The class is currently ranked No.2 in the nation by all major recruiting outlets. Monroe is only the sixth prospect in the class rated at the three-star level. Ten recruits are rated at the four-star level according to Scout.com.
At six-foot-one, 190 pounds, Monroe picked Penn State over a handful of schools including Auburn, Iowa, Maryland, Nebraska, and Georgia Tech. Monroe is the eighth defensive player in Penn State's current recruiting haul and the second set to play in the defensive backfield.
Penn State's current recruiting class has been an impressive one already, but with nearly half a year until National Signing Day, it will be a long time before all of the 16 verbally committed players actually become Nittany Lions. Until then, fans continue to hope that all goes according to plan and these players all sign on the dotted line.
