Three-Star Offensive Lineman Brendan Brosnan Commits to Penn State

Another day, another former Vanderbilt recruit flipping his commitment to Penn State.

Three-star offensive lineman Brendan Brosnan out of Park Ridge, Illinois has decided to join James Franklin and several other former Vanderbilt recruits in Happy Valley, according to Steve Wiltfong of 24/7 Sports.

The 6’6″, 274 lb. Brosnan committed to Vanderbilt in July of 2013. However, after Franklin — who was the lead recruiter for Brosnan — and several members of his staff left Nashville for State College, Brosnan decided to switch from Vanderbilt to Penn State. He will join four-star defensive end Lloyd Tubman and three-star offensive lineman Chance Sorrell as former Vanderbilt commits who have joined Franklin at Penn State.

Brosnan held offers from 19 schools, including Boston College, Illinois, Maryland, and Virginia Tech. He is a three-star recruit on ESPN, Rivals, and 24/7, and is considered a top-40 recruit in the state of Illinois.

With the addition of Brosnan, Penn State has 22 recruits in its incoming 2014 class. The Nittany Lions have four scholarship recruits along its offensive line: Brosnan, Sorrell, three-star Noah Beh, and three-star Chasz Wright.
