Hansard committed to Florida this past August, but unofficially visited Penn State on Nov. 5. This was followed by an official visit yesterday. Hansard is rated as the second best recruit in Penn State’s 2017 class. With this addition, Hansard joins fellow four-star defensive recruits Yetur Matos (DE), Johnathan Sutherland (S), and Dylan Rivers (OLB). 24/7Sports now ranks Penn State’s 2017 recruiting class No. 20 in the nation and No. 4 in the Big Ten.
