Lamont Wade (Ed O'Brien)

PA 5-Star Lamont Wade Headed To Happy Valley

Penn State landed the crown jewel of its 2017 recruiting class. I lend my thoughts and provide a couple of video links worth viewing.

Penn State landed the crown jewel of their 2017 class tonight when five-star cornerback Lamont Wade announced that he was committing to the Nittany Lions.

Wade, who has been one of the most dynamic players in Pennsylvania ever since his freshman year, picked Penn State over the likes of Tennessee, West Virginia, UCLA and Pitt. 

The knock against Wade has been his height, but he more than makes up for it with his technique, speed, and competitive nature.  Wade has gone up against some of the top wide receivers in the nation for several years and has always held his own in various all-star showcases and 7v7 tournaments. The five-star defensive back rarely got tested on the field of play and was also dominant on the offensive side of the ball as well at the running back position for his football team. 

Wade will be a tremendous addition to a group of very solid cornerbacks already on the roster. Penn State should move up the recruiting rankings with this latest addition.  Check out his recruiting video below or click here.
