Penn State Target Larry Turner-Gooden Decommits from Arizona State after White Out Game

109,958 fans were in attendance when Auburn took on Penn State in the first ‘White Out’ game played in Happy Valley since 2019. Among those in attendance was 2022 four-star athlete Larry Turner-Gooden from Bishop Alemany High School in Mission Hills, California.

Coming into the game as an Arizona State commit, Turner-Gooden (6-foot-0, 180 pounds) and over 100,000 watched Penn State beat Auburn 28-20, and nearly a week later, he announced his decision to de-commit from ASU and reopen his recruiting process.

After his weekend in State College, posting on Twitter about how much enjoyed his visit with the Nittany Lions, it appears that the ‘White Out’ atmosphere and Nittany Lion coaches managed to sway his initial decision. According to Rivals’ Greg Biggins, it appears that PSU, Texas, USC, LSU and Colorado will be involved in securing Turner-Gooden’s signature.

According to 247Sports, Turner-Gooden is the 118th-ranked recruit in the nation, slotting in as the fifth-ranked athlete and the ninth-ranked recruit from California. Rivals rates him as the 111th-ranked recruit in the nation, coming in as the eighth-ranked safety and the 10th-ranked recruit from California.

Turner-Gooden originally committed to ASU in February, holding offers from nearly every major college in the country, so his addition will add a surprising late boost to wherever he winds up.
