A Harrisburg native, Bruce is the No. 15 player in Pennsylvania and the 30th-ranked offensive guard in his class. The Nittany Lions got in on his recruitment very early, offering at a time where Bruce only held offers from Toledo, UMass, and Rutgers. He committed this past October, while on campus for the Whiteout.
This doesn't seem like the kind of decommitment that stems from the staff doing anything wrong, so much that the player committed before he explored all his options, as Bruce has received offers from schools like West Virginia and Texas A&M over the past few weeks.
Penn State's 2021 recruiting class is down to just two players, tight end Nick Elksnis and wide receiver Liam Clifford, younger brother of Sean. The class now sits at No. 30 nationally and eighth in the Big Ten.
