Three-Star CB D.J. Brown Commits To Penn State

After a run of offensive line commitments with C.J. Thorpe and Michael Miranda hopping on board in recent weeks, the defensive side of the ball for the Nittany Lions picked up a commitment of its own when cornerback D.J. Brown (Fairburn, GA) made the call for Penn State. Fresh off a visit for the Blue-White game, the three-star defensive back picked the Nittany Lions over offers from California, UCLA, Northwestern, Harvard, and Wisconsin.

While it appeared that Penn State led for Brown following his visit, this commitment is a little bit out of left field. It’s not very often that a Southern prospect visits a Northern school only one time and commits, but the fact that Brown went back to Georgia and waited to come off of his visit high before committing bodes well for the Nittany Lions to keep his commitment.

Brown is Penn State’s first defensive back commit in 2017, and it looks like he’ll be slotted as a cornerback. From this point, expect the Nittany Lions to focus the rest of their cornerback recruiting efforts on five-star Lamont Wade (Clairton, PA), who just visited Happy Valley this past weekend.

Welcome to Penn State, D.J.!
