Penn State's run of success on the recruiting trail is not showing any signs of slowing down as the calendar turns to July. The latest prospect to commit is three-star wide receiver Parker Washington. He announced his decision on Twitter Tuesday evening.
Washington received his Nittany Lion offer back in February, and made it up to Happy Valley in June for his official visit. His only other official visit came days before, when he ventured to Madison to check out the Wisconsin Badgers. In addition to the two Big Ten schools, Boston College, Georgia Tech, Duke, Houston, Nebraska, Indiana, and Utah were among the many schools to extend their own scholarship offers.

Really liked what I saw from receiver Parker Washington tonight at @TheOpening. He shined during the one-on-one portion and had arguably the night's most impressive catch. https://t.co/gXNsjbM7Lq @seanfitz247 @cpw_3 @247Sports pic.twitter.com/kua0PosLBO— Tom Loy (@TomLoy247) July 2, 2019
