Freshman offensive lineman Nate Bruce has decided to end his football career and will not suit up for the Nittany Lions. This story was first reported by Lions247.
A three-star prospect and the top-rated interior lineman in the state in the 2021 class, Bruce committed to the Nittany Lions back in 2019 while on campus for the Whiteout. He briefly decommiteed in Feburary of 2020 but quickly recommitted that same day in what was one of the weirder recruiting sagas of the Franklin era.
He enrolled in January and received praise from the staff almost immediately for his work during winter workouts. 247Sports reports the Harrisburg native left the program shortly after the start of spring ball.
The remainder of Penn State's 2021 class is set to enroll next week in time for the second summer semester. Landon Tengwall, another early enrollee, is now the only offensive lineman in Penn State's 2021 class.
