Penn State football gets verbal pledge from No. 6 guard in the U.S.
Penn State continued its recent trend of successfully recruiting top-rated players when Saleem Wormley, ranked the No. 6 guard in the nation by Rivals.com, announced on Twitter that he will join the Nittany Lions next year.
Nine of Penn State’s 12 verbal commitments from the Class of 2019 have come from five- and four-star players. Wormley, 6-foot-4, 300 pounds, is rated a four-star prospect and the 103rd player in the nation.
Wormley will be a senior at Smyrna (Del.) High School. He’s also the top-rated player in the state, according to Rivals.
Wormley had 18 scholarship offers, but he narrowed his finalists to Penn State, Notre Dame and Rutgers.
