Torrence Brown Commitment Likely Rounds Out 2014 Recruiting Class

Penn State seems to have rounded out its 2014 recruiting class on National Signing Day with a commit from three-star Alabama athlete Torrence Brown, according to Rivals’ Ryan Snyder. The Tuscaloosa Academy product had originally committed to Southern Miss in January before receiving interest from the Nittany Lions, likely following Lloyd Tubman’s decision to pull back his commitment.

Brown played defensive end and linebacker in high school. 247sports’ composite ranking lists Brown as the 44th-best recruit out of Alabama and the 129th-best athlete in the country. Brown also played on offense in high school, rotating between running back, fullback, and tight end. He is a versatile football player and is listed at 6’5″ and 230 lbs. with a speedy 4.5-second 40-yard dash time listed on his hudl page, where you can check out his highlight reel.

The commitment likely rounds out the 2014 recruiting class for the Nittany Lions as they have 25 scholarships to offer. While the team is still waiting on letters of intent from Jonathan Thomas and Mark Allen, no surprises are expected and the 2014 class should be official shortly. Stay tuned to our live blog as we’ll have coverage of the day’s events, including James Franklin’s 4 p.m. presser and The Signature Event at 5 p.m.
