Penn State picked up two commitments last week, while also losing another long-time commit.
Princeton, N.J. lineman Wendy Laurent committed last Tuesday, while Harrisburg defensive end Evan Schwan committed during an official visit to Happy Valley over the weekend. Schwan, who played for Class AAAA state champion Central Dauphin, finished his senior season with 78 tackles and 17 sacks to earn All-State honors and a spot in the Big 33 game. Laurent, who played at the Hun School, was a first-team All-Prep selection. The 6-foot-3, 285-pounder will play along offensive line, most likely at guard, for the Nittany Lions.
Philadelphia quarterback Skyler Mornhinweg will not be part of the 2012 recruiting class. A PSU verbal commitment since July, Mornhinweg will end up at Florida. Another former PSU commit, Massachusetts defensive back Armani Reeves, committed to Ohio State over the weekend.
Jeannette safety Demetrious Cox committed to Michigan State on Monday. He has been considering Penn State and Ohio State as well. Barring any last-minute surprises it appears Penn State’s class, which stands at 19 commits, is finished.
