Penn State football: Nittany Lions land defensive tackle recruit

Penn State landed its second defensive tackle recruit in as many days Friday.

Gilman (Md.) defensive tackle Ellison Jordan announced his commitment to the Nittany Lions on Twitter. Jordan is a four-star recruit who is ranked the No. 17 defensive tackle in the country, according to 247Sports.

The 6-foot, 270-pound Jordan chose Penn State over Maryland and Virginia Tech, among others. He is the 14th commitment in Penn State’s Class of 2016.
