Penn State is on a recruiting roll, and the hits will keep on coming today.

Connecticut prepster Marquis Wilson (above), who projects as a cornerback, committed to the Nittany Lions — the third commit in the last four days, with JUCO safety Jaquan Brisker and No. 3 overall running back Devyn Ford picking Penn State on Thursday and Friday, respectively.

Wilson is the nation’s No. 299 overall prospect and the second-best player from Connecticut, per 247 Sports. He had offers from 23 programs, including Alabama, Florida, Florida State, Michigan, Ohio State and Pittsburgh.

The Nittany Lions’ class now has six members, which is expected to grow today when five-star linebacker Brandon Smith — the No. 30 recruit in the country — is announcing his decision, and 247 Sports’ Crystal Ball Predictions lean heavily toward Penn State.


The purpose of journalism, and in this case any Philly digital site, is to “comfort the afflicted and afflict the comfortable.”

FASTPHILLYSPORTS.COM separates itself from the other Philadelphia blogs that provide Philly sports news because we do not accept the conventional wisdom, which is what the teams want you to believe even if a simple eye test tells you not to.
