Penn State’s pipeline into Philadelphia powerhouse Roman Catholic High erupted again Friday, when four-star forward Lamar Stevens committed to the Nittany Lions.
Pat Chambers’ program is now set to sign three players from the defending AAAA state champs in early November — Stevens (right, below), four-star guard Tony Carr (center) and three-star guard Nazeer Bostick (left).
Those three players alone would constitute one of the best PSU recruiting classes in history. Add in Oak Hill (Va.) Academy three-star forward and Lion commit Joe Hampton, and you’re looking at a class that will be pushing for a top-15 ranking nationally.
In the latest Scout.com ratings — before Stevens committed — PSU had the nation’s No. 19 class.
Penn State sophomore guard Shep Garner also hails from Roman Catholic.
