Four-Star 2018 Receiver Justin Shorter Commits To Penn State

Penn State snatched up a big commitment from one of its top 2018 prospects Saturday, as four-star wide receiver Justin Shorter picked the Nittany Lions over offers from Rutgers, Virginia Tech, Pitt, and North Carolina, among others.

The Monmouth Junction, N.J., native is considered the eighth-best rising junior receiver nationally and the third-overall prospect out of the Garden State, according to the 247Sports Composite Rankings.

Shorter made a pair of unofficial visits to State College over the past two weeks, solidifying that Penn State was the school for him. He joins a 2018 recruiting class that already features two of the country’s most sought-after recruits in five-star defensive end Micah Parsons and four-star offensive tackle Chris Bleich. James Franklin and his staff are building something special on the recruiting trail next cycle, with a litany of elite names strongly pondering early offers from the Nittany Lions.

Checking in at 6-foot-4, 210 pounds, Shorter fits the mold of Penn State’s towering young wideouts Juwan Johnson, Irvin Charles, and Dae’lun Darien. He’ll have the chance to be a key contributor in Joe Moorhead’s up-tempo offense when he arrives on campus, which won’t be for another two years.

Welcome to Happy Valley, Justin!
