Penn State's win over Pitt wasn't the only positive result Saturday, as James Franklin and his staff also added their first 2019 commitment.
Penn State landed its first 2019 commitment Saturday evening, as State College native Keaton Ellis verbally committed to head coach James Franklin following the 33-14 win over Pitt.
A three-star prospect, it was no secret that the Nittany Lions were the team to beat. Since extending the offer, which took place back in June following an excellent performance at the staff’s Elite Prospect camp, Ellis has been on campus about a half-dozen times. The 6-foot, 160 pound cornerback held just two offers from Buffalo and Syracuse and was expected to see what other programs offer this season, but he ultimately decided to end the inevitable.
