PSU continues to dominate the state in recruiting by landing prized RB Singleton

James Franklin and Penn State certainly are dominating the state during the current recruiting cycle, hitting another home run Tuesday by landing coveted 4-star running back Nicholas Singleton from Governor Mifflin High School in Reading.

Singleton (6-foot, 210 pounds) is the No. 2 prospect in Pennsylvania and No. 6 running back in the nation. He chose PSU over the likes of Alabama, Wisconsin, Notre Dame and Texas A&M.

In landing Singleton, Penn State has now picked up coommitments from five of the top eight prospects from PA. Here’s the breakdown:

** No. 2 — RB Nicholas Singleton

** No. 4 — WR Mehki Flowers

** No. 6 — WR Anthony Ivey

** No. 7 — DE Ken Talley

** No. 8 — DE Tyreese Fearbry

The No. 3 prospect, CB Keenan Nelson Jr., is a strong Penn State lean, according to the experts at 247Sports.

In addition, the Lions also have landed No. 12 (QB Beau Pribula), No. 17 (LB Keon Wylie), so that’s seven of the top 20 in the state.

Singleton announced his decision live on CBS Sport HQ. He first was offered by PSU two years ago and made several visits to campus prior to the year-long recruiting dead period. That had to give Penn State at least a little advantage in the process, since he already was so familiar with the university.
