Penn State Football: Recruiting Haul Continues To Skyrocket With Latest Commitment
Penn State recruiting is as hot as it has ever been. James Franklin and company added yet another verbal commitment late Tuesday to give the Nittany Lions the ninth addition to the 2015 recruiting class.
The latest young prospect to give his word to Penn State's newest head coach comes in the form of Ashburn, Va. wide receiver Brandon Polk. The 5-foot-9, 155 pound athlete is ranked as a four-star receiver by Scout.com.
Polk visited Penn State last week according to multiple recruiting outlets on an unofficial visit. He was teammates with Penn State 2014 signee Trace McSorley who is set to enroll this June.
Over the course of his recruitment process, Polk received over a dozen scholarship offers from schools such as Boston College, Stanford, Wisconsin, and Pittsburgh among others.
Polk is the ninth player in Penn State’s recruiting class and is the second receiver to commit to Franklin so far. Four-star receiver Juwan Johnson committed earlier this month and is one of five offensive players set to join Penn State as members of the 2015 recruiting haul.
Penn State's 2015 recruiting class continues to be rated highly by recruiting services. The Nittany Lions boast six four-star recruits, good enough for the fourth best recruiting class in the nation according to Scout.com
