The hits just keep on coming for the Nittany Lions. Four-star cornerback Josh Moten has decommitted from Penn State and will reopen his commitment, he announced on Thursday on Twitter.

Moten, the No. 31 corner and 13th ranked player in Maryland, committed to Penn State back in February while on campus for Junior Day. He was then again on campus in late March and again for the Blue-White Game in April. His decommitment comes in advance of a planned visit to Texas A&M this weekend. He is the second National Christian Academy player to decommit from PSU in as many days. Teammate, and four-star OL prospect Aaryn Parks left the 2020 class on Wednesday.
He is the third pledge to leave the Nittany Lions' 2020 class in the past few weeks, following Grant Toutant's flip to Ohio State and Parks' decommitment just this week. Penn State's class is now down to nine members and No. 21 nationally according to the 247Sports Composite Rankings.
According to Rivals' Ryan Snyder, this is not unexpected, nor a result of the recent moves of Toutant and Parks.
For those not on message board: Myself and colleagues were actually expecting this one, so its not out of nowhere or a result of Parks decision. Not a surprise.— Ryan Snyder (@RivalsSnyder) June 13, 2019
