Warren to Georgia

Penn State was pressing hard for the No. 1 JUCO product in the nation, Lackawanna C.C. cornerback De'Jahn Warren. Even though he attends a school that's been incredibly helpful to Penn State in recent years and the Nittany Lions held 100% of the Crystal Balls for Warren, he released a surprise commitment to the Georgia Bulldogs.

With great players like Jaylen Reed, Zakee Wheatley, and Kalen King already on board in the 2021 class, limited scholarships available and top target Derrick Davis Jr. yet to decide, it's unlikely Penn State will push hard to add a new defensive back to the mix in this class.
