Four-Star Running Back Nicholas Singleton Commits To Penn State Football
Penn State football has added its first running back to the 2022 recruiting class.
Four-star running back Nicholas Singleton announced via the CBS Sports HQ livestream Tuesday that he’s committing to James Franklin’s program over Notre Dame and Alabama, among others.
Singleton hails from Reading, Pennsylvania, and he plays his high school ball at Governor Mifflin where he helped lead the Mustangs to an 8-1 record during their 2020 season. According to MaxPreps, Singleton ran the ball 107 times for 1,311 yards (12.3 yards per carry!) and 22 touchdowns in just eight games this past season.
According to 247Sports, Singleton is the No. 43-ranked player in the nation, which makes him the highest-ranked player in Penn State’s 2022 class thus far. Additionally, he’s ranked as the third-best running back nationally and the second-best overall player from Pennsylvania.
He’s already the ninth Pennsylvania native to join the Nittany Lions this cycle, as they’ve dominated in-state recruiting in this class so far. Overall, he’s the 18th player to commit to James Franklin’s Class of 2022, which has recently seen an impressive flurry of commitment activity.
Singleton’s commitment adds to the recent success Ja’Juan Seider has had recruiting running backs. Despite adding no running backs in the 2021 class, the Nittany Lions added Keyvone Lee and Caziah Holmes in the 2020 class, as well as Devyn Ford and Noah Cain in the 2019 class.
