It has been a good day for the Penn State Nittany Lions.
First, Mike Gesicki, a 6’5, 235-pound four star tight end, confirmed his commitment when Penn State head coach James Franklin visited Gesicki over the weekend.
Then, quarterback Trace McSorley switched his commitment from the Vanderbilt Commodores to Penn State, following Franklin to Happy Valley.
To top that off, three-star cornerback Grant Haley has committed to Penn State.
Like McSorley, Haley was a Vanderbilt commitment, pledging to the Commodores back in June.
“He (Franklin) thinks that I can come up and do some things my freshman year and become part of this program just like he did,” Haley told Sean Fitz of 24/7 Sports. “They want me to play corner, kick return and punt return.”
Haley, a 5’10, 170-pound defensive back who attends the Lovett School in Atlanta, Georgia, is regarded at the 672nd best overall player, 47th best cornerback and 58th best player in Georgia, according to 24/7 Sports composite rankings.
Haley chose Penn State over Vanderbilt, Cincinnati, Duke, Florida and South Carolina.
