Penn State added its third recruit for the class of 2013 late Wednesday night when linebacker Brandon Bell gave a verbal declaration to the Nittany Lions.
The 3-star rated Bell, who is from New Jersey, was down to Rutgers and Penn State according to most reports.
The 6-2, 215-pound inside linebacker from Oakcrest High School is the 11th member of new Nittany Lions head coach Bill O’Brien’s first true recruiting class.
Bell visited the Penn State campus last week, and while he’s only a 3-star recruit Bell is the No. 13 ranked player at his position according to Scout.com.
Purdue and Northwestern from the Big Ten had also offered Bell.
