Jesse James Commits To Penn State

Whoo_siren_medium

The good recruiting news for Penn State just keeps on coming as the Nittany Lions picked up verbal No. 4 for the Class fo 2012 early Monday from South Allegheny tight end Jesse James according to the Pittsburgh Tribune Review and Lions 24/7.

Currently, James is not rated star-wise by any of the major services. According to the Trib, though, he was receiving interest from Pittsburgh, Maryland and Toldeo, so use that as a barometer of where he stands for now.

James has a nice frame for a tight end at 6'7" and 245 pounds. He's the second at his position to verbal to Penn State in the last three days after Brent Wilkerson joined the class of 2012 on Saturday. The Trib says James was recruited by defensive coordinator Tom Bradley and tight ends coach Bill Kenney.

Sean Fitz at Lions 24/7 has your stats on the new guy.

As a junior in 2010, James caught 34 passes for 463 yards as a tight end and on the defensive side of the ball he added 55 tackles, 18 of which were behind the line of scrimmage. He was a second team all-state selection as an offensive lineman.

Not a whole lot else out there on him right now, though. In the mean time, here is his highlight tape.
