It’s rare for a player to re-commit to a school after de-committing from them but it happened today for Penn State.
Prior to today’s game against Villanova, 2023 4-star tight end Mega Barnwell announced that he’s once again committed to the Nittany Lions. Barnwell becomes Penn State’s third commitment for the Class of 2023.
