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.
