New Jersey LB Jason Cabinda Commits to Penn State
The 2014 commitments keep rolling in for Bill O’Brien. Jason Cabinda, a linebacker/running back out of Flemington, New Jersey, committed to Penn State last night.

Cabinda stands at 6’1″, weighs 220 pounds, and attends Hunterdon Centeral High School. He originally committed to Syracuse on July 1, and previously held offers from Penn State, Maryland, Navy, Boston College, and a host of other programs.
Cabinda plays on both sides of the ball. He is a running back on offense, and a very good one, as he ran for 1,427 yards and 21 touchdowns as a junior. However, it is anticipated that Cabinda will play linebacker for the Nittany Lions.
This is the 15th commitment for O’Brien’s 2014 class, and the third since Penn State’s unforgettable four-overtime win against Michigan, which Cabinda attended. ESPN and 24/7 have him listed as a three-star recruit, while Rivals lists him as a two-star recruit.
Not a bad gift for O’Brien’s 44th birthday, don’t you think?
