Donovan Harbour, a four-star Class of 2024 offensive lineman from Catholic Memorial High School in Waukesha, Wisconsin, announced his commitment to Penn State Tuesday afternoon.
Harbour, who’s listed by 247Sports at 6-foot-3 and 310 pounds, is the No. 1 player from Wisconsin in his class and the No. 7 interior offensive lineman in the country according to 247Sports’ composite ratings.
He released his top seven New Year’s Eve, which also featured Florida, Ohio State, Tennessee, Oregon, Michigan and Wisconsin in addition to Penn State. Over the past few days leading up to his commitment, Penn State emerged as the strong favorite, with four “crystal ball” projections from 247 pegging Harbour to Penn State in the wake of this past Saturday’s Blue-White Game.
Hours after the game ended, another ‘24 lineman, Wyomissing’s Caleb Brewer, committed. ‘25 four-star running back Kiandrea Barker decided to commit before the Blue-White Game kicked off and announced his decision Sunday evening. A big objective of coach James Franklin and his program during Blue-White weekend is to get some commits from the recruits that visited campus.
Franklin and co. accomplished that feat this year. I. Harbour’s case, Penn State can also take pride in the fact that Harbour chose Penn State over in-state Wisconsin, which has been a Big Ten rival over the years, although the school’s don’t play on an annual basis due to being in separate Big 10 divisions.
Donovan Harbour is the 10th player to commit to Penn State’s ‘24 class and the third lineman, joining Brewer and four-star Cooper Cousins (McDowell High School). This follows an excellent ‘23 class for OL coach Phil Trautwein, who landed Penn State’s top two recruits, J’ven Williams and Alex Birchmeier.
