A key recruit in the 2013 Penn State class, tight end Adam Breneman has decided to remain committed to the Nittany Lions. Breneman is the top tight end recruit in the country, according to Rivals. Without Breneman, other members of the 2013 class could have departed.
In addition to Breneman, Christian Hackenberg, a 4-star quarterback recruit and Elite 11 invitee from Virginia announced that he was still committed this past weekend. For the moment, the Nittany Lions have also retained 5-star offensive tackle Dorian Johnson (via ESPN Insider $).
Penn State's recruits and current players are theoretically up for grabs after the sanctions which the NCAA and Big Ten Conference recently levied against Penn State in the wake of the Jerry Sandusky scandal. Current Penn State players will be allowed to transfer without sitting out a season. Penn State's Class of 2013 players won't be able to compete for the Big Ten title or be able to participate in a bowl game until their senior years.
