New Jersey Linebacker Donte Raymond Commits to Penn State

After some confusion surrounding his commitment, three star New Jersey linebacker Donte Raymond committed to Penn State early this morning, according to Lions247.

Reports first came out that Raymond committed to Penn State on Monday afternoon. However, he squashed those reports on Monday evening.

Two days later, and the former Delaware commit confirmed his commitment to Penn State.

Not much is known about Raymond. When he originally “committed” on Monday, he had no stars on 247 Sports — he now is a three star recruit, according to the site — and still has no stars on ESPN or Rivals. Raymond is 6’1″ and weighs 205 pounds, and attends Rahway High School in Rahway, New Jersey.

Raymond’s commitment gives Penn State 18 commits in the class of 2014. The New Jersey native joins Troy Reeder and Jason Cabinda as linebackers in Penn State’s 2014 class, and is the second player to commit to Penn State in as many days — the Lions received arguably the biggest commitment from a defensive player in Bill O’Brien’s tenure when defensive tackle Thomas Holley committed yesterday.
