Lions Add Three-Star Receiver Brandon Polk

In his campaign to #dominatethecountry, coach James Franklin added another nationally-ranked, top-300 recruit to his 2015 class: three-star wide receiver Brandon Polk, according to Ryan Snyder of Rivals.

Polk is a 5-foot-9, 152-pound prospect from Briar Woods High School and a former teammate of 2014 recruit Trace McSorley. He is the 51st-ranked receiver in the country and 12th-best from the state of Virginia, per Rivals.

Recruited by wide receivers coach Josh Gattis, Polk unofficially visited Happy Valley this past weekend and signed soon after. He had been weighing offers from Stanford, Virginia Tech, Maryland and Wake Forest.

Polk logged 975 receiving yards in his high school career, along with 11 receiving touchdowns and 18 total touchdowns. His 66 catches were good for 46.4 yards per game.

Polk is the ninth hard commit for the 2015 recruiting class and the second true wide receiver, joining four-star wideout Juwan Johnson. Five of Penn State’s recruits thus far are rated four stars or higher, in a class which 247sports ranks seventh in the nation.
