The Nittany Lions recruiting run continues. After picking up Jaquan Brisker and Devyn Ford to end last week, Penn State has added four-star Connecticut DB Marquis Wilson.
Wilson picked up a Penn State offer in early August, just a few weeks after attending Penn State's camp. He was in town for Junior Day in February and again for this year's Blue-White game.

Despite holding offers from conference foes Iowa, Ohio State, Michigan, and Nebraska, Wilson was a solid Penn State lean for the majority of his recruitment.
Wilson is considered a top athlete in the 2019 class but his future is in the defensive backfield. He's got the speed and size combo you love to see out of a modern corner, and could push to see the field early in his Penn State career.
Wilson is sixth member of the 2019 class, which moves up to No. 28 in 247Sports Team rankings.
