Penn State Snags Commitment from 4-Star WR
Penn State added a fourth member to its 2014 recruiting class yesterday with a verbal commitment from four-star wide receiver Troy Apke, per Ryan Snyder of Blue and White Illustrated. The 6-2, 175-pound wideout from Mt. Lebanon, PA, also received offers from Bowling Green, Georgia Tech, Kentucky, Minnesota, Pittsburgh, and Toledo.

Sorry, Pitt fans. It must be demoralizing that even the prospect of playing near his hometown and for his father’s alma mater was not enough to entice Apke away from Coach O’Brien’s program.
Apke, a current high school junior, posted 54 receptions for 1,048 yards and 13 TDs in his most recent season. Rated a three-star prospect by Rivals and a four-start prospect by Scout, Apke will add to a strong receiving core that already includes Allen Robinson, Brandon Moseby-Felder, Eugene Lewis, and incoming three-star receiver DaeSean Hamilton, a 2013 commit from Stafford, Va.
