Penn State’s 2012 recruiting class just keeps getting better and better with the news that four-star cornerback Armani Reeves has announced his intention to play for Joe Paterno at Penn State.
“Penn State just felt like home,’’ said Reeves, who was also offered scholarships by Connecticut, Notre Dame, and Michigan. “Everytime I went there it just felt like the right place to be.’’
Reeves is ranked as the No. 1 prospect in New England and the No. 5-ranked cornerback nationally by the recruiting services.
Penn State’s incoming Class of 2012 now numbers 16 and the Lions are expected to take at least seven more. In the past week the Nittany Lions, in addition to landing Reeves, have got verbal commitments from four-star Wyoming Valley West receiver Eugene Lewis and five-star Illinois defensive tackle Tommy Schutt. The quality of these three signings will propel the Lions recruiting class into the top 10 nationally.
The addition of such good players should also help Penn State to convince top recruits Noah Spence and Jarron Jones who are undecided to come to Happy Valley. If the Lions can do that, they will have a top five nationally recruiting class!
