Linebacker Zach Bradshaw Commits to Penn State

As the 2012 recruits attend their first Penn State class today, Bill O’Brien has added another player to next year’s group in the form of 6-3 205 lb. Zach Bradshaw, an outside linebacker from Damascus High School in Maryland.

The news, first reported by Ryan Snyder of Blue-White Illustrated, gives the Nittany Lions their thirteenth verbal commit for the Class of 2013 and comes on the heels of a huge commitment from five star offensive lineman Dorian Johnson Sunday night.

Bradshaw is a three star recruit by major recruiting services and had scholarship offers from the likes of Arizona, Boston College, Georgia Tech, Michigan, South Carolina, and West Virginia among others. Rivals has him pegged as the 19th best player in the state of Maryland while 247 Sports has him ninth. In addition to being a very versatile player, it appears that Bradshaw is no slouch in the classroom either, boasting a 4.0 GPA per his Rivals page.

Nearly fifty days passed between the verbal of Andrew Nelson in mid-April and Neiko Robinson in early June, but O’Brien and his staff have been rolling this month after a quiet May. Bradshaw joins Brandon Bell as the two linebackers so far.

This puts the Nittany Lions way ahead — both in quality and quantity — of last year at this time, when they only had nine commits.

The way things have gone recently, more good news could be on the way.
