Lavert Hill Decommits From Penn State

Update: Lavert Hill is no longer committed to Penn State.

After months of speculation, visits, and pro-Michigan tweets, the four-star cornerback decided to re-open his recruitment. Hill did so via a Twitter note.

In renouncing his non-binding verbal, the 5-foot-11, 175 pound Michigan native became the second decommitment in the class of 2016, following defensive tackle Christian Colon a few months ago. His decision to depart left Penn State as the No. 10 ranked class, down from its previous position at No. 6.

Although his commitment was a big part of Penn State’s high ranking in the class of 2016 recruiting cycle, there are many potential replacements for him on James Franklin’s recruiting board. Pittsburgh’s Damar Hamlin and New Jersey’s Jordan Fuller both have Penn State in their respective final groups, and could ultimately choose the Nittany Lions.

As always with recruiting, it is important to remember that these athletes are high school aged. This is the biggest decision of their lives to this point, and it’s not anyone’s right to judge them for it.
