Penn State picked up a commitment from four-star defensive athlete Koa Farmer on Saturday evening.
At 6-foot-2, 207 pounds, Farmer could play either outside linebacker or safety for the Nittany Lions. Each position has the potential to produce early playing time, with outside linebacker being the more likely of the two.
"The journey is done!" he posted on Instagram Saturday evening. "First I want to thank California-Berkeley for the great and outstanding opportunity. It has been a long and powerful journey! I am blessed to announce that I will be ending the recruiting process and attend Penn State University were I will become Dr. Farmer and fulfill my dream of becoming a PhD in Pathology!
"We Penn State are on the rise. We are going to win the Rose Bowl. We are going to win a national championship. All I can say now is #WEARE #PENNSTATE."
Farmer, who was committed to California, was also hearing from Wisconsin recently. Badger assistant coach Chad Kauha'aha'a was expecting to get him on campus next weekend, but that now appears to no longer be the case.
James Franklin and his staff also added a commitment from kicker Jorge Powell. The Miami, Fla. native took an unofficial visit to Penn State this weekend, agreeing to be walk-on with the Nittany Lions.
Both Powell and Farmer are currently on campus. Blue White Illustrated will have more form both when they make themselves available.
