Penn State’s 8th Commit for 2014: Safety Marcus Allen
Penn State’s 2014 recruiting class now stands at eight members with a verbal commitment from Marcus Allen, a 6-1, 187-pound safety from Upper Marlboro, Maryland. Per Rivals, Allen had also received offers from a number of Big Ten programs — Michigan, Michigan State, Nebraska, Northwestern, Purdue, and Wisconsin, in addition to incoming members Maryland and Rutgers.

Allen is the third defensive prospect to commit to Bill O’Brien’s 2014 class, joining fellow defensive back Daquan Worley and linebacker Troy Reeder. Allen and Worley’s commitments will strengthen a thin Penn State secondary that will lose senior safeties Malcolm Willis and Stephen Obeng-Agyapong after the 2013-2014 season.
Allen’s commitment caps off an impressive recruiting streak by O’Brien. In addition to having brought in Allen, Worley, and Reeder on the defensive side of the ball, O’Brien has also secured commitments from four-star receivers Troy Apke, DeAndre Thompkins, and Chris Godwin, and from running backs Nick Scott and Mark Allen.
