Penn State target Josiah Brown, a four-star Class of 2024 safety from Holy Trinity Diocesan High School in Hicksville, New York, will commit tonight at 8:30 p.m., he announced via Twitter earlier this afternoon.

Brown (6-foot-1, 175-pounds) is the top-ranked player in New York from his class according to 247Sports’ site rankings. Penn State offered Brown back in March, and he also has offers from Michigan State, Notre Dame, Pitt, Rutgers, Syracuse, Temple and West Virginia.
Brown is also a track runner, and ran a 6.38 55-meter time indoors earlier in his sophomore year. He also does quite well in the classroom, posting a 3.66 GPA, and is a member of the National Society of High School Scholars.
Should Brown commit to Penn State, he’d be just the second member of coach James Franklin’s 2024 class. McDowell High School offensive lineman Cooper Cousins is the only 2024 commit Penn State has at this time.
