Penn State Target Commits Elsewhere Days After PSU OV

It doesn’t appear that one of the top cornerback recruits in the class of 2025 will become a Penn State player. 

Four-star defensive back Graceson Littleton committed to Clemson Wednesday over Penn State and others, including Alabama and Oklahoma. 

A Tampa Bay, Florida, native from Wiregrass Ranch High School, Littleton earned a 93 grade by 247Sports as the 71st-best player in the country and 9th-best corner. 

The 6-foot, 180-pound corner also received offers from Pitt, West Virginia, Iowa, Ole Miss, Michigan, Michigan State, Auburn, Georgia, and Florida. Littleton is a speedster who also ran track and completed a 10.91 100-meeter dash in his career.

247Sports Director of Scouting Andrew Ivins reviewed Littleton in February: 

“Ascending cornerback prospect with the ideal mix of size and speed. Put himself on the national radar spring before senior season, clocking a laser-timed 4.51 effort in the 40-yard dash at an Under Armour Next Camp outside of Orlando. Comfortable at this stage in press-man coverage as he fights for leverage and does his best to maintain phase while out on the perimeter…. competitive when the football is in the air and will do his best to shade throwing lanes… Should be viewed as a potential multi-year starter at the Power Four level and a possible all-conference selection if he can keep progressing.”

Associate head coach and cornerback coach Terry Smith recruited Littleton, who visited Happy Valley May 31. Littleton visited Clemson June 3 before committing two days later and bypassed visits to Alabama and Oklahoma later this month.

Penn State has one DB committed to its 2025 Class. That’s Xavier Thomas, a three-star from Pittsburgh Central Catholic.
