A day after losing a commitment to Florida, Penn State football has flipped 2023 Alabama safety Elliot Washington (5-foot-11, 195-pounds). Washington is a four-star safety from Venice, Florida and plays for the neighborhood’s high school.

Washington took his official visit to Penn State back on June 10. At the time he was an Alabama commitment as he committed to head coach Nick Saban and co. back on January 31, 2022. He also visited Michigan State on June 24, and 247Sports crystal ball prediction listed them as the front runner.
He’s the No. 110 rated player in the country according to 247Sports composite rankings and the No. 6 rated safety. He’s the No. 25 best recruit from the state of Florida.
Washington being flipped comes just one day after four-star 2023 quarterback Marcus Stokes was flipped from Penn State to Florida. Neither moves have adjusted Penn State’s 2023 class ranking as they still sit at No. 5 in the country according to 247Sports.
