Under Armour All-American corner Lamont Wade commits to Penn State

By

Clairton (Pa.) cornerback Lamont Wade has decided to remain in his home state and committed to Penn State on Saturday night.

Wade is ranked as the No. 5 player at his position, No. 2 player in Pennsylvania and No. 50 player overall, according to the 247Sports Composite rankings. He was rated as a five-star player by Rivals and Scout and a four-star player by 247Sports and ESPN.

He released a commitment video but also donned a Penn State hat in making the announcement at an event in Clairton to top off a dapper white tuxedo jacket and black blow tie.

Wade, who is the top-rated recruit in Penn State’s class thus far, is an early enrollee and will begin at Penn State next month after he plays in the Under Armour All-America Game on Jan. 1 in Orlando.

His final five were Penn State, Pitt, West Virginia, Tennessee and UCLA among 25 reported offers.

Wade developed a close relationship with Nittany Lions coach James Franklin and cornerbacks coach Terry Smith.
