Hardy is considered the sixth-best prospect from the Garden State this cycle, according to 247Sports. The 6-foot-5, 241-pounder was high school teammates with incoming freshman Robert Martin at St. Joseph Regional before transferring to powerhouse Paramus Catholic, the alma mater of Jabrill Peppers and Rashan Gary. He joins four-star receiver commit Justin Shorter as the next generation of New Jerseyans headed to Happy Valley.

Hardy picked the Nittany Lions over offers from Clemson, Michigan, Ohio State, and Pitt, among others, becoming the 13th member of James Franklin’s recruiting class. He’s currently the lone defensive end committed to Penn State, as five-star Micah Parsons backed off his verbal pledge earlier this spring.

Hardy visited for the Blue-White Game in April and returned this weekend ready to join the Big Ten’s second-ranked class. You can check out his Hudl highlight reel right here.

Welcome to Penn State, Dorian!
