Penn State Lands Top D-Line Coach Sean Spencer…Again

Penn State added to its already loaded recruiting class on Wednesday with the commitment of five-star recruit defensive line coach Sean Spencer…for the fifth consecutive year.

While other top recruits penned their national letters of intent on live ESPN broadcasts, Spencer took to the ol’ Twitter machine to announce his commitment to the Nittany Lions– probably because it’s the most effective way to get in touch with James Franklin.

Despite being ranked just outside of the ESPN top 300 recruits this year, Spencer’s commitment is huge for Franklin’s Nittany Lions. His Wild Dogs– or as the defensive line unit is called– have consistently finished in the top 25 in sacks and tackles for loss during his four seasons in Happy Valley.

Some of Spencer’s fellow 2018 recruiting class members will also boost the defensive line’s depth chart. Five-star defensive end Micah Parsons along with four star defensive linemen Jayson Oweh and PJ Mustipher are some of the standouts who will look to make an impact under Spencer as soon as next season.

All jokes aside, Spencer’s enthusiasm and commitment to the team are likely a relief to Franklin, especially after watching his offensive coordinator and running backs coach leave for greener pastures at the end of last season.

At the very least, the tweet brought some humor to Franklin’s National Signing Day.
