Penn State football: Miller, Windsor verbally commit to Nittany Lions

With National Signing Day looming, Penn State came closer to completing its 2015 recruiting class on Sunday.

The Nittany Lions picked up two verbal commitments on Sunday to push its current recruiting class to 22 players. A pair of defensive linemen made the call for Penn State as end Shareef Miller and tackle Robert Windsor both announced their intentions to attend Penn State and play for head coach James Franklin.

Both players announced their decisions on Twitter.

Windsor, who last played at Fond Du Lac High (Wisconsin), is considered a three-star prospect by the major recruiting services. He’s listed at 6-foot-5 and 260 pounds and is the first defensive tackle in the 2015 class. He turned down an offer from Wisconsin.

He, along with Miller, visited Penn State over the weekend. Windsor committed Sunday morning with Miller following later in the day.

Miller, considered a three-star prospect by the major recruiting services, is listed at 6-foot-5 and 220 pounds according to Lions 24/7. He played at George Washington High School in Philadelphia and is the third defensive end to commit in this class — Franklin’s first full crop since taking over and completing Bill O’Brien’s second class last season.

Their pledges are non-binding until they sign a National Letter of Intent, which they are expected to do on Feb. 4 when Penn State will introduce its 2015 prospects at Rec Hall in “The Signature Event” at 7 p.m.

Penn State’s current class is ranked 12th in the country by 24/7 Sports and is second in the Big Ten only to Ohio State.
