Tanner Hartman Commits to Penn State

Bill O’Brien’s 2013 recruiting class grew to eleven verbal commits last night as Virginia offensive lineman Tanner Hartman (#56 in the picture) decommitted from Maryland to join the Nittany Lions.

The news was broken in a rather unconventional way, as top ranked quarterback commit Christian Hackenberg took to Twitter to welcome his future teammate to Penn State.

Hartman is rated as a three star recruit by 247 Sports and given two stars by Rivals and Scout. In addition to Maryland, the 6-4 247 lb. high school senior had offers from Temple, Richmond, and Liberty.

According to Lions 247, Hartman has been interested in Penn State since the beginning of the summer but chose the Terrapins after learning Penn State was not extending an offer at the time. Dorian Johnson’s de-commitment following the sanctions opened up a scholarship offer that Hartman took advantage of. Larry Johnson Sr. is his primary recruiter, which certainly doesn’t hurt things either.

This news comes on the heels of Casey Gaines, a safety from Georgia committing to Penn State last Wednesday.

Hartman doesn’t have the five star rating and hype that Johnson’s June decision had, but another player who believes in Penn State is a welcoming addition for a program searching for believers.
