Penn State added another member to its 2017 recruiting class.
Donovan Johnson, a cornerback out of Detroit, verbally committed to the Nittany Lions via his personal Twitter account on Tuesday night.
Johnson, ranked a four-star prospect by 247Sports, is a playmaker out of highly-decorated Cass Technical High School.
The 5-foot-10, 176-pounder has wheels, clocking a 4.35 40-yard dash at The Opening Finals in July, which is Nike’s premier football camp hosted at Oregon. Johnson recorded the third-fastest time at a camp that invites 166 prospects.
Never miss a local story.
Johnson chose Penn State over Virginia Tech after coming to State College for an official visit last week.
Johnson, who will take part in the Army All-American Bowl, is the 17th member of Penn State’s 2017 class and second cornerback, joining D.J. Brown of Creekside High School (Georgia).
