Penn State football added two more commits to its 2020 class on Tuesday night as three-star wideout Parker Washington and three-star corner Joseph Johnson both verbally committed to James Franklin and his staff.

Washington hails from Richmond, Texas and is rated the No. 58 ranked player in his home state, according to He committed to Penn State over Wisconsin, Houston, and Nebraska.

The future downfield target hits the scales at 5-foot-10 and 197 pounds. Despite his size, Washington managed to pull down 75 receptions for 1486 yards and 18 touchdowns last season at Fort Bend Travis High School. He is the third wide receiver to join Penn State's 2020 haul after four-star prospect Jaden Dottin and Lackawanna College product Norval Black both committed to Penn State in June during an up-and-down month on the recruiting trail for the Nittany Lion program.

Joseph Johnson committed to the Penn State on Tuesday evening just a few minutes following Washington's commitment.

The Nittany Lions worked their way into Johnson’s view following his decommitment from NC State. He was also offered by Ohio State, Pitt, and Texas A&M, among others. He’s the ninth-best player in Virginia and the No. 33 cornerback in the nation, according to 247Sports.

Johnson comes in at 6-foot-3 and 180 pounds. He plays for Life Christian Academy in Chester, Va., and joins Lackawanna College's Ji’Ayir Brown as cornerbacks in the Nittany Lions' current recruiting class.

Now at 18 commitments deep, Penn State's 2020 class continues to sit at both third in the Big Ten and 10th in the nation according to the 247 Network national rankings.
