Three of those four have committed to SEC schools. Haynes is joining Miller as a pledge to Georgia’s 2023 class, and Stokes committed to Florida earlier this month. Avery has not re-committed yet.
With Haynes out of the picture, Penn State’s 2023 class now sits at 18 commits, and four-star Ejani Shakir is the lone receiver committed.
This is the second time Haynes has de-committed. Penn State benefited the first time, when Haynes un-pledged from Rutgers in late-May, got offered by Penn State less than two weeks later and committed to coach James Franklin’s program June 12, at the end of his official visit.
Despite Haynes’s flip, July has been a kind month overall for Penn State recruiting. Penn State has gotten four commits this month, starting when four-star defensive back Elliot Washington II flipped from Alabama July 8. Three-star running back London Montgomery, from Scranton, Pennsylvania, committed three days later, and four-star linebacker Tony Rojas committed three days after that, followed by fellow four-star linebacker Ta’Mere Robinson the next night.
Penn State is ending July with a big recruiting weekend. The annual Lasch Bash summer cookout is scheduled for July 29-30.
