Brevard has been a Penn State target for over one year. The Nittany Lions offered the big tackle from Carmel, Indiana back in February of 2018. Counting this weekend's visit, he has visited Happy Valley on three separate occasions.
The BREVARd File

- School: Carmel (Carmel, IN)
- Composite Rating: ★★★★ (.9258)
- Composite Rank: No. 202 overall, No. 20 DT
His offer list reads like a "Who's Who" of college football royalty. Michigan, Clemson, Florida State, Ohio State, Notre Dame are the biggest names to pursue Brevard. His top-four heading into this weekend were considered to be the Wolverines, Wisconsin, and the home state Indiana Hoosiers.
Brevard's first trip to Pennsylvania came back in September of 2018 for the Ohio State game. He returned a month ago for a more up close visit with the staff. Getting back on campus so quickly for this weekend's Blue-White festivities was definitely a promising sign as well, but a commitment seemed unlikely. According to 247Sports, he had intended to take official visits to Bloomington, Madison, and State College in June.
Penn State's 2020 class now has eight members, good for seventh nationally, and second in the Big Ten behind Ohio State. Brevard is the first defensive lineman to join the class as well.
