Class Of 2025 Defensive Back Omari Gaines Commits To Penn State Football

Penn State football picked up its second commitment in the past four days when Class of 2025 defensive back Omari Gaines announced his commitment to the program Tuesday morning.

The New Jersey native picked the Nittany Lions over Duke, Ole Miss, and Rutgers, among others.

The 6’2”, 175-pound defensive back isn’t ranked yet on any of the major recruiting services.

Gaines made five total visits to Penn State throughout his recruitment, with two coming in 2023. He becomes the second player to commit to the Nittany Lions’ Class of 2025, as offensive lineman Jaelyne Matthews was the first player to join the class back in January.
