Penn State Flips Indiana Commit, Lands Dual-Threat QB Tommy Stevens

Two days after beating Indiana, the Penn State football team came away with another win from the state: Dual-threat three-star quarterback Tommy Stevens flipped his commitment from Indiana to Penn State.

The Class of 2015 product boasts size and speed, weighing in at 6-foot-4, 200 pounds, and clocking a 4.72 40-yard dash. 247Sports classifies him as the No. 18 dual-threat quarterback in the country. He plays at Decatur Central High School in Indianapolis.

Stevens committed to Indiana on June 4, and received offers from Penn State, Boston College, Cincinnati, and Iowa. The Nittany Lions mustered only one offensive touchdown against the lowly Hoosiers, but the performance was apparently sufficient to convince Stevens to flip his commitment. Stevens becomes the 19th commit of Penn State’s 2015 class.

Also according to 247, Stevens was in attendance at Beaver Stadium on Oct. 24, to see Penn State fall in double-overtime to Ohio State. James Franklin rang in the news with his standard post-decision tweet.

Offensive line coach Herb Hand also chimed in, this time with a bit of a jab at Indiana.

Here are Stevens’ senior year highlights, as posted on his Hudl page.

Penn State’s 2015 class is ranked No. 12 nationally, and second in the Big Ten, per 247. Franklin and staff didn’t land any recruits during October, but lost quarterback Brandon Wimbush to Notre Dame. Receiver-turned-likely-linebacker Daiquan Kelly, who committed in mid-September, was the last prospect to commit to Penn State.
