Tight End Nick Bowers Decommits From Pitt, Commits to Penn State

Penn State football rolled in its third commitment to its 2015 recruiting class in the last two days Monday afternoon as tight end Nick Bowers pledged his allegiance to the Nittany Lions. The news was first reported by Rivals’ Ran Snyder.

Soon after, special teams coordinator and running backs coach Charles Huff confirmed the news.

To make it a little sweeter, Bowers had committed to Pitt almost exactly a year ago, as James Franklin’s campaign to dominate the state continued in mighty fashion.

Bowers, according to 247sports, is a three-star prospect and the No. 18 player in Pennsylvania. He visited Pitt 10 days ago, but came to State College this past weekend, a trip that ultimately swayed his decision. Bowers weighed scholarship offers from a host of top regional schools including Cincinatti, Purdue, Temple, and Northwestern.

Bowers, a Kittanning Senior High School product, stands 6-foot-4 and weighs 244 pounds. His Hudl page clocks his 40-yard dash time at 4.78 seconds. You can find more videos on his Hudl page. Here are his junior year highlights:

Penn State’s 2015 recruiting class now has 23 commitments, and two more openings before it fills its allotment of 25. Rivals ranks it as the No. 11 class in the nation, and second only to Ohio State in the Big Ten.

The Nittany Lions will offer plenty of depth at the tight end position next year, as Kyle Carter and Mike Gesicki both return significant experience.

It’s been a fine two-day stretch for Penn State’s 2015 recruiting class following its official visits weekend. Sunday, Penn State stacked its defensive line, receiving commitments from defensive end Shareef Miller and defensive tackle Robert Windsor.
