Franklin’s 5th Commit: Three-Star Corner Grant Haley

Franklin has flipped yet another recruit from Vandy to Penn State, per Rivals’ Ryan Snyder — this time, it’s three-star prospect Grant Haley, a 5-foot-10, 180-pound defensive back from Atlanta, Ga. Haley joins three-star quarterback Trace McSorley, four-star defensive end Lloyd Tubman, three-star offensive tackle Chance Sorrell, and three-star offensive lineman Brendan Brosnan as the first five commits of the Franklin era.

Haley also received offers from a slew of powerhouse programs: Arkansas, Cincinnati, Florida, Georgia Tech, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Wisconsin. He had originally committed to play for Franklin at Vanderbilt on May 14, 2013.

Haley’s commitment bolsters an oft-criticized Penn State secondary that currently includes rising senior Adrian Amos and rising juniors Jordan Lucas and Trevor Williams. He also joins three-star safety Marcus Allen and three-star corner Daquan Worley as fellow defensive backs in Penn State’s 2014 class.

Penn State now boasts the 20th-best recruiting class in the nation, per Rivals. For a look at what Haley might look like on the field, check out his 41-yard scamper for a score in the highlight below:
