Three commit to Penn State in big weekend

Rob Christy-US PRESSWIRE

From Joe Juliano of Philly.com: Three players committed to Penn State on a big recruiting weekend, including three-star linebacker Zayd Issah.

Zayd Issah, a 6-foot-3, 220-pound linebacker from Central Dauphin High in Harrisburg, committed to Penn State on June 29, less than a month before the NCAA sanctions were assessed. He withdrew his commitment on Sept. 7 but reinstated it after (Bill) O'Brien hosted visits for recruits on Saturday.

Two other players to commit were 6-1, 180-pound cornerback Anthony Smith of Randolph, N.J., who competed this season for Valley Forge Military Academy, and 6-1, 235-pound linebacker Jonathan Walton of Daphne, Ala.

The weekend commitments increased Penn State's total for 2013 to 16, which is one more than the 15-scholarship limit imposed by the NCAA beginning next year and continuing through 2016.

For the rest of the story on Penn State's new commits, including how the school is working within sanctions, head over to Philly.com.
