Three-Star Athlete Shaquon Anderson-Butts Decommits From Penn State, Joins Iowa Western Community College Reivers

Penn State verbal commit Shaquon Anderson-Butts switched things up on National Signing Day, as the Harrisburg native signed with Iowa Western Community College on Wednesday. Anderson-Butts is currently ranked as the 16th-best recruit in Pennsylvania.

Anderson-Butts made his verbal commitment to James Franklin’s 2018 recruiting class on July 25, but didn’t join his high school teammate Micah Parsons by officially signing on the early signing day in December. It’s been reported this was because of “school issues.”

He is currently listed as an “Athlete” on 247 Sports, but all signs point to him taking on a role as a defensive back or wide receiver when he gets to IWCC.

Anderson-Butts certainly played a role in getting his five-star teammate to come to Happy Valley, and he was quite sure that Parsons would be joining James Franklin and Co. He didn’t join his teammate at Penn State, though.
