Four-Star Wide Receiver Josiah Brown Commits To Penn State Football

The cards are falling for Penn State’s wide receiver corps.

Four-star wide recevier Josiah Brown committed to Penn State football Friday, he announced via Twitter. Brown, who selected the Nittany Lions over Rutgers and Georgia, became the 20th member of the program’s recruiting Class of 2024.

The Hicksville, New York, native is ranked as the No. 21 athlete in the nation and the best player in his home state, according to the 247Sports composite rankings. While listed as an athlete, Brown was recruited by Penn State wide receiver coach Marques Hagans.

In his junior year of high school at Holy Trinity Diocesan, Brown put up 21 catches for 425 yards and five touchdowns, according to MaxPreps. He also recorded 19 total tackles and two interceptions on defense, while returning seven kickoffs for a total of 93 yards.

At 6’0″ and 170 pounds, Brown becomes part of a standout recruiting group at Penn State, which was listed as No. 7 in the nation by 247Sports before his commitment. Brown is the group’s third player recruited as a wide receiver to join the group after it previously picked up four-star Tyseer Denmark and three-star Peter Gonzalez.
