Four-Star Quarterback Marcus Stokes Decommits From Penn State Football

Four-star quarterback Marcus Stokes announced his decommitment from Penn State’s Class of 2023 in a Twitter post Thursday afternoon. Stokes had previously committed to the Nittany Lions in April.

After attending a Florida minicamp in June, Stokes announced his flip to the Gators.

“I would like to thank Penn State for supporting me, loving me, and showing the same to my family,” Stokes wrote. ”This decision was not the easiest to make.”

Ranked as 247Sports’ No. 10 overall quarterback, Stokes was the only quarterback in the Nittany Lions’ Class of 2023 to date. The youngest members of Penn State’s quarterback room come from last year’s recruiting class: Drew Allar and Beau Pribula.

Stokes’ decommitment comes less than a month after three-star offensive lineman Joshua Miller flipped to Georgia. Four-star athlete Neeo Avery also decommited in March.

Despite the recruiting loss, Penn State holds the nation’s fifth-ranked Class of 2023. The Nittany Lions are second in the Big Ten, behind No. 2 overall Ohio State.
