Brandon Wimbush Flips Commitment from Penn State to Notre Dame

James Franklin and his staff haven’t lost many recruiting battles since they have arrived in Happy Valley, but today, the program may have lost its biggest one yet.

Brandon Wimbush, a four-star quarterback out of Saint Peter’s Prep in New Jersey, decommitted from Penn State today after visiting Notre Dame this weekend. The news was first reported by @ScoutBrianDohn, and confirmed on Wimbush’s Twitter account.

Wimbush originally committed to play for the Nittany Lions in May, but did not have an offer from Notre Dame at that point. When five-star quarterback Blake Barnett decommitted from the Fighting Irish in June, the team shifted its focus towards recruiting Wimbush. Apparently, the efforts of the Irish were enough to earn the young quarterback’s commitment.

Ironically enough, at his press conference today, James Franklin spoke about recruits committing early and then visiting other schools. “When guys try to commit, I tell them no at first,” he said. “I tell them, ‘Make sure you know what you’re saying.'”

After Wimbush announced the news, Penn State’s 2015 recruiting class dropped a spot to No. 9 in the nation, according to 247Sports.

We wish Brandon the best of luck in South Bend.
