Penn State Finalist for 2022 Fla. DB Anthony Rose; Decision Next Week

Could Penn State be adding a player to its Class of 2022 in the upcoming days?

Three-star defensive back Anthony Rose from Hallandale High School in Hallandale, Florida, told Nittany Sports Now that he plans on making his college decision on Feb. 23 and that the Nittany Lions are one of his three finalists, along with South Carolina and Arizona.

Rose is a 6-foot-4, 185-pound safety that received his offer from Charles Walker and Penn State back on Jan 10. Aside from these three finalists, Rose also holds offers from Arizona State, Indiana, Kansas, LSU, Maryland, Michigan, Mississippi State, Pitt, Syracuse, Tennessee and Texas A&M.

Prior to starting school on Friday, Nittany Sports Now spoke briefly with Rose about his upcoming decision and what he heard from Penn State that put them in his final three.

“I feel that I’m ready to make this decision because I’m very comfortable with the connection and the relationship that I’ve built with the coaching staff,” said Rose. “I decided to make this decision on Feb. 23 because that’s my mom’s birthday and she passed away, so I’m going to do it on that day for her.”

When talking about Penn State and the things that impressed him most, Rose immediately brought up the facilities and a member of the coaching staff.

“I really like Penn State’s facilities, they’re really nice,” Rose said. “Plus, they have a great coaching staff, especially Coach Charles Walker, who’s really nice and has always kept things real with me. Penn State is recruiting me to play defensive back, they like how physical I play.”

Rose is a very intriguing prospect because of his 6-foot-4 frame. The Crib South Florida, a recruiting service in Florida, had an interesting description of Rose, saying he “has a frame to make scouts drool. His un-coachable length, combined with plus athleticism means sky-high potential.”

The Florida native told NSN that he has taken virtual tours of Penn State and South Carolina but not with Arizona.

Rose will announce his decision on Twitter on Tuesday at 3 p.m.
