Isheem Young Reportedly No Longer Part of Penn State Recruiting Class Following Arrest
Four-star safety Isheem Young is no longer part of Penn State’s Class of 2018, according to Ryan Snyder of Blue-White Illustrated.
The Philadelphia Imhotep Charter star was taken into custody Friday after he was charged with robbing a South Philly Wawa at gun point on July 30.
No word from Penn State on this yet, but if reports are true that he’s no longer with the Nittany Lions, it would likely be because of a rescinded scholarship. This would be the second time this year Penn State rescinded a scholarship offer — four-star defensive end Dorian Hardy lost his scholarship after hospitalizing a player in a post-practice brawl.
Young originally committed to Penn State over the summer, choosing the Nittany Lions over the likes of Alabama, Ohio State, and Clemson.
Penn State’s Class of 2018 now has 21 verbal commits and is ranked fourth in the nation, according to 247sports.
