Gonzalez joins nine other 2015 recruits, including four-star recruits offensive tackle Ryan Bates and Juwan Johnson. Gonzalez was leaning towards Ohio State before his Penn State visit. He also received offers from Wisconsin, Boston College, and Rutgers among 14 total offers.
The 6’4, 300-pound guard is rated as the No. 7 offensive guard in the nation in 247sports’s Composite Ranking. He joins the No. 4 2015 recruiting class in the country, according to 247 Sports.
Gonzalez was primarily recruited by Josh Gattis, the team’s offensive recruiting coordinator and wide receivers coach. He played high school football at Union Hill High School in Uniot City, NJ, joining receiver Juwan Johnson as the second Jersey commit in the class.
The Nittany Lions now have 10 hard commits for the 2015 class, including seven consensus four-star players.
