Give me a defensive tackle...no, a guard...give me a big dude and a siren WHOOOOO!!!

Good news on the recruiting front today as Penn State landed their fifth verbal commitment for the class of 2012  when New Jersey defensive tackle Jamil Pollard informed the coaches of his intentions.

Pollard has the ability to play defensive tackle or offensive guard, but most people feel he will end up on the defensive side of the ball. He stands 6'5" and weighs in at 280 lbs. As a junior, Pollard recorded 56 tackles and 4 sacks. Scout ranks him as a three star prospect and the #40 defensive tackle in the country. Rivals is a little more generous giving him a fourth star.

For you non-star gazers out there, Pollard also had a pretty impressive offer list that includes Alabama, Florida, Iowa, and Rutgers. He was also seeing interest from Nebraska and Syracuse.

 Pollard joins TE Jesse James, DE Brent Wilkerson, LB Camren Williams, and OG Anthony Stanko as the early members of the class of 2012. There is still room in this class to take one or two more defensive tackles, but what's great about Pollard is the staff has some flexibility to move him over to offense. Though he has mentioned in the past that he really wants to play defense.
