Penn State Notches Commit From Four-Star Philadelphia DB John Reid

0

The hits just keep on coming for James Franklin’s incredible 2015 recruiting class. John Reid, a four-star defensive back from reigning state champion St. Joseph’s Prep in Philadelphia, announced his commitment to Penn State for the Class of 2015.

Reid is a big one. Rivals ranks him the No. 2 defensive back in the state, and the No. 10 at the position in the country. His laundry list of offers includes the heavyweights from all over the nation — Alabama, Miami, Michigan, Notre Dame, Michigan State, and, for good measure, Pitt, Maryland, Rutgers, and Temple.

His commitment, the 19th from the class, launches Penn State back into the top five of 247Sports’ recruiting rankingsCurrently, the Lions top the Big Ten, and overall trail Alabama, Texas A&M, Clemson, and South Carolina.

Check him out:

Reid was a critical player in St. Joe’s Prep’s championship game win against Pittsburgh Central Catholic last December, catching a 59-yard touchdown on the other side of the ball to help seal the 35-10 victory (full disclosure: I went to the Prep. Go Prep.).

It seems like every time Franklin’s 2015 class drops a couple of spots in the rankings, he pulls in another big name to put it back where it belongs. Take it away, Coach Hand.
