Penn State ‘24 Commit Transferring Schools

Another one of Penn State football’s Class of 2024 commits will be playing football at a different high school for his senior season.

Hours after three-star EDGE Xavier Gilliam announced he’d be transferring from Wilde Lake High School (Columbia, Maryland) to Quince Orchard (Gaithersburg, Maryland), word got out that four-star WR Josiah Brown will also be transferring.

Brown, who committed to Penn State in late-June, will be leaving Holy Trinity Diocesan (Hicksville, New York) for Malverne High School, which is also in New York and is Brown’s hometown. Previously, Brown started at Holy Trinity Diocesan for three seasons. Newsday.com’s Gregg Sarra was the first to report on this story.

Brown (6-foot-1, 175-pounds) is the top prospect in New York, the No.22 athlete and the No. 269 player nationally, according to 247Sports composite rankings. He also runs indoor track, posting a time of 6.38 seconds in the 55-meter dash.

Brown is an athlete that plays physically on both sides of the ball, as he also plays safety. As a wide receiver, he pays fast, and he plays with good fundamentals. Brown has the ability to make catches not only on deep balls but on contestant catches. He has sure hands and good ball skills.

Brown is projected to play receiver, he has the potential to switch to defensive back if the opportunity presents itself. As a defensive back, he is a sure and aggressive tackler who embraces contact in the middle of the field.

Brown is one of three receivers committed to Penn State’s ‘24 Class. Penn State also has commitments from three-stars Tyseer Denmark (Philadelphia) and Peter Gonzalez (Pittsburgh).
