Brown Goes Blue on National Signing Day

The Tuscaloosa (Ala.) athlete flipped from Southern Miss to Penn State Wednesday morning.

This time last week, Torrence Brown was considering a visit to Penn State. It never happened, but Brown proved Wednesday he didn't need to see University Park to become a Lion.

The Tuscaloosa (Ala.) Academy two-star athlete signed and faxed a National Letter of Intent to Penn State Wednesday, Fight On State confirmed, becoming commitment number 25 in State's Class of 2014 and filling its final spot in the process.

Brown, a 6-foot-4, 230-pounder, has played a variety of positions over his career, including linebacker, defensive end, linebacker, running back and tight end. It was not immediately clear which position the senior was being recruited at by the Lions, but he'll likely start on the defensive side of the ball.

Penn State started National Signing Day with one spot to fill following a de-commitment from Louisville (Ky.) Seneca defensive end Lloyd Tubman, who is expected to sign with Kentucky. Another target that announced Wednesday, Jacksonville (Fla.) William Raines corner Lamont Simmons, selected USC over Arkansas, Penn State and Auburn.
