Penn State added another member to its Class of 2009 on Saturday afternoon, when Buffalo (N.Y.) Cansius lineman John Urschel came into the fray. Urschel made his commitment to assistant coach Mike McQueary this afternoon while in town for his official visit.
"I committed to Penn State," Urschel said via text message. "I love it here."
The 6-foot-3, 275-pound two-way lineman became the 25th member of the Penn State Class of 2009, and the second senior prospect to commit to the Nittany Lions in the last 24 hours. New Jersey wide receiver Shawney Kersey also committed this weekend.
He was named first team all-state and first team all-Western New York, as well as winning the Trench Trophy, which is given to the top lineman in western New York. He was also named the defensive MVP of his conference.
Urschel is also a standout in the classroom, as he boasts a 94 GPA and scored a 2190 on the SAT. He has received acceptance packages from Princeton and Cornell.
