Four-Star DT Adam McLean Decommits From Penn State

In a surprising move, four-star defensive tackle Adam McLean decommitted from Penn State tonight, becoming the second major recruit to jump ship from James Franklin’s Class of 2015 in about a month.

He announced the news via his Twitter account:

McLean is a 6-foot-2, 290-pound product of Bethesda, Maryland. He committed to Penn State in April, but lined up recruiting visits to southern schools in October, including Ole Miss and Tennessee. He recently received an offer from Texas, though its not known if that affected his decision. He also has offers from most of the heavy hitters in college football, including Alabama, Ohio State, Michigan State, and Georgia.

Last month, highly-touted quarterback prospect Brandon Wimbush also decommitted, leaving Penn State’s class for Notre Dame’s. The New Jersey product is one of the highest-ranked quarterbacks in the country. Penn State’s 2015 class now has 18 members, 10 four-stars and eight three-stars.

For what it’s worth, McLean seemed quite committed to Penn State during a skills camp in the summer:

Penn State’s 2015 class fell one spot to No. 12 after the news, according to 247Sports’ rankings.
