Defensive Back Ayron Monroe Commits to Penn State

Another day, another 2015 recruit for James Franklin and the Penn State football team.

Three-star defensive back Ayron Monroe committed to Penn State on Saturday, as reported by Greg Pickel:

Monroe is a 6-0, 195 pound prospect from St. John’s College High School in Washington, DC. Monroe weighed offers from Auburn, Boston College, Maryland, and Virginia. But, as has been the trend lately with other top recruits, Monroe chose the Nittany Lions.

According to his Hudl page, Monroe boasts a 4.45 second 40 yard dash and a 31.7″ vertical.

On February 15, Monroe attended Junior Day at Penn State. That same day, he was offered a scholarship. He unofficially visited again on March 22, and returned on April 12th for the Blue and White game. Ten days later, defensive coordinator Bob Shoop and special teams coordinator Charles Huff visited Monroe before he ultimately committed.

Penn State now has 16 hard commits in its 2015 recruiting class, which ranks second in the country behind only Alabama, according to 247sports. Earlier last week, four-star recruits Sterling Jenkins and Brandon Wimbush both pledged their respective allegiances to the Nittany Lions.

Monroe will join Jarvis Miller as the only other listed defensive back in the class. Check out his Junior year highlights below:
