Four-Star Defensive Tackle Cole Brevard Commits To Penn State

Penn State football picked up its second verbal commitment of Blue-White weekend when four-star defensive tackle Cole Brevard made his decision on Saturday evening.

Brevard’s commitment is quite a victory for the Nittany Lions. The defensive tackle chose James Franklin’s program over Clemson, Michigan, and Wisconsin, among others. He’s the best player available from the state of Indiana in this recruiting cycle and the 20th-best defensive tackle in the country, per 247Sports.

The eighth member of Penn State’s recruiting class of 2020 is from Carmel, Indiana, and he plays his high school ball at Carmel High School. Tim Banks and Sean Spencer were both involved in bringing Brevard to Happy Valley.

Brevard is the first defensive lineman to join the Nittany Lions in this recruiting cycle. He joins a class that includes four-star linebackers Curtis Jacobs and Derek Wingo and four-star defensive back Joshuah Moten. He’s the second player to commit to Penn State on the day of Blue-White; three-star offensive lineman RJ Adams made his pledge earlier on Saturday.

Penn State’s recruiting class also features three offensive linemen — Adams and fellow three-star prospects Grant Toutant and Golden Achumba. Dual-threat quarterback Micah Bowens is the only signal caller in the recruiting class, and he was in Happy Valley for the Blue-White game.
