Penn State picked up three oral commitments to its class of 2020 when three-star recruits Joseph Johnson, Parker Washington, and Tyler Warren pledged their allegiance to the Nittany Lions in a span of less than 24 hours.
Johnson, a 6-foot-2, 175-pound cornerback out of Life Christian Academy in Colonial Heights, Va., announced his commitment Tuesday evening via Twitter.
247Sports ranks Johnson, who chose Penn State over N.C. State and Texas A&M, among others, as the ninth-best player in Virginia.
Washington, of Fort Bend Travis High School in Richmond, Texas, joined Johnson in tweeting his commitment late Tuesday. The 5-foot-10, 197-pound wide receiver, who is ranked by 247Sports as the 58th-best player in Texas, got creative with his announcement by including a video in which he tells Penn State receivers coach Gerad Parker that he intends to be a Nittany Lion.
Warren, who attends Atlee High School in Mechanicsburg, Va., committed early Wednesday afternoon. 247Sports lists the 6-foot-5, 223-pound Warren as an athlete, rated as the 16th-best player in Virginia. Warren’s decision came nearly two months after he decommitted from Virginia Tech.
