Report: Football Commit Donte Raymond Flips To Delaware

Donte Raymond, a three-star outside linebacker from Rahway, NJ, who was committed to Penn State, has reportedly switched to Delaware. Raymond sent out a tweet indicating that he’s going to Delaware before deleting it this evening, according to FightOnState.com’s Greg Pickel.

Raymond was originally committed to Delaware before he switched to Penn State in December after being recruited by John Strollo and John Butler. Strollo’s status is uncertain, though he seems to not be in the plans for the Nittany Lions under new head coach James Franklin. Butler, on the other hand, followed Bill O’Brien to the Houston Texans.

It isn’t clear whether the new coaching staff rescinded its offer to Raymond or he decided to make the switch to Delaware following the departure of his initial recruiters. This certainly isn’t a big recruiting loss for the Nittany Lions as Raymond was ranked as the 117th OLB in the country by 24/7 Sports and was rated three stars.

This news comes on the same day that Franklin landed two new recruits, the first being former Vanderbilt three-star quarterback commit Trace McSorley. Later on Monday, news broke that three-star defensive back Grant Haley, also a Vandy commit, flipped his commitment and followed Franklin & Co. to Penn State.
