After #dominating the 2014 recruiting class, James Franklin made headway in filling out his 2015 class as he received a commitment from four star wide receiver Juwan Johnson. His coach, Mark Maccarone, confirmed the report to Fight On State’s (and our) Greg Pickel.
Johnson, a 6-5 200 pound prospect from Glassboro, New Jersey, received offers from Michigan State, Ohio State, and Alabama. He unofficially visited campus March 16.
Earlier on Sunday, he tweeted that he was returning to State College, hinting that he’d be signing with the Lions later that day.

Johnson is ranked 119th nationally by 247sports, 13th at his position, and 2nd in his state. He clocked a 4.40 second 40-yard dash. In his junior year at Glassboro High School, Johnson caught 26 passes in nine games, for 421 yards and four touchdowns. He also ran the ball 28 times for 125 yards and a touchdown.
This is Penn State’s eighth hard commitment for the 2015 class. Johnson’s the first wide receiver; all commits have been at least three-star recruits.
