Three-Star Edge Rusher Xavier Gilliam Commits To Penn State Football
James Franklin earned his second commitment of the day from three-star edge rusher Xavier Gilliam Sunday.
Gililam’s commitment came just hours after three-star offensive lineman Deryc Plazz pledged to the Nittany Lions.
The 6’3,” 260-pound commit hails from Columbia, Maryland, and is the state’s No. 18-ranked player in his position. Further, Gilliam ranks as the No. 43-best edge rusher nationally, according to 247Sports.
He becomes the 16th player to commit to Penn State’s Class of 2024 and the first edge rusher of the group. The class ranks No. 7 nationally per 247Sports.
Gilliam received offers from Duke, West Virginia, Virginia Tech, Indiana, Maryland, Pitt, and Texas A&M, among others, but chose the Nittany Lions after his official visit on June 2.
