After a wild series of events, New Jersey defensive end Dorian Hardy is no longer a part of the 2018 recruiting class for Penn State according to Sean Fitz of Lions247.com.
Hardy had recently been kicked off the Paramus Catholic football team after being involved in an altercation in which he alleges he was punched by one of the team’s coaches and a freshman football player ended up hospitalized.

The move leaves Penn State with 22 commitments in the 2018 class. The Nittany Lions are still pursuing a number of defensive lineman including Micah Parsons, Jayson Oweh and Tyreke Smith.
