Four-Star Defensive Lineman Tomarrion Parker Commits To Penn State Football

James Franklin’s recruiting hot streak continues.

Four-star defensive lineman Tomarrion Parker announced his verbal commitment to the Nittany Lions’ Class of 2023 Tuesday afternoon. Parker is the second defensive line commitment secured by Franklin in the last four days.

Parker’s commitment comes after a June 17 official visit to Happy Valley. The Phenix City, Alabama native selected Penn State over Alabama, Georgia, Florida, Michigan State, and Tennessee – even committing before he embarked on his scheduled official visits to the latter three schools.

The 6’4″, 255-pound lineman is the No. 48 ranked recruit in the country, according to 247Sports. Parker additionally ranks at No. 6 among the nation’s defensive linemen and the No. 6 overall recruit in Alabama. He is the 14th player to verbally commit to Penn State, joining fellow defensive linemen Jameial Lyons and Tyriq Blanding, who committed on June 17.

Penn State’s highly-touted Class of 2023 now ranks third in the country and second in the Big Ten, only trailing No. 2 overall Ohio State.
