In-State RB, Penn State Target De-Commits From Powerhouse

Penn State Nittany Lions Coach Ja'Juan Seider - November 12, 2022 David Hague/NSN

A highly-touted RB with a Penn State offer has de-committed from the University of Georgia.

Jabree Wallace-Coleman, a four-star, 6-foot, 200-pounder from Philadelphia’s famous Imhotep Charter High School, announced via social media that he’ll be de-committing.

It would make sense if the departure of Fran Brown played a big part in Wallace-Coleman’s de-commitment. Brown played a big role in recruiting Wallace-Coleman to Georgia when he was the defensive backs coach. Now, he’s the head coach at Syracuse.

Penn State head coach James Franklin and associate head coach Terry Smith were there Friday night when Imhotep won the state championship.

Franklin and Smith weren’t there just to see Coleman. Two of Imhotep’s players— three-star CB Kenneth Woseley Jr. and four-star receiver Tyseer Denmark— are committed to Penn State’s 2024 Class and are set to sign next Wednesday, Dec. 20. has several other players that have Penn State offers and, hey, why wouldn’t Penn State’s coaches be at the Pennsylvania State Championships?

But Franklin, Smith and co. are aware of Wallace-Coleman, and he put on a show, picking up 214 yards and a 68-yard touchdown on 30 carries. Wallace-Coleman has been on Penn State’s radar for a long time, having been offered in December 2021. Even after committing to Georgia in July 2022, Penn State’s stayed in touch with Wallace-Coleman, and he visited the school Sept. 2 for the team’s season-opening win over West Virginia under the Beaver Stadium lights.

Penn State’s the only school Wallace-Coleman has visited since committing to Georgia, although he’s received offers from Michigan State, South Florida and Wisconsin in that time.

Penn State currently has six players committed to its 2025 Class.
