Penn State football coach Bill O'Brien landed a verbal commitment from Fairfax, Va., running back/defensive back Nick Scott.

Scott, originally from Lancaster, is the second Nittany Lions commitment for the 2014 class.

“As soon as I stepped foot on campus (this past weekend), I was blown away and knew it was the place for me,” Scott told the Washington Post. “It felt like home.”

He also had a scholarship offer from Boston College and took an unofficial visit to Alabama in October.

In his first season at Fairfax, Scott had 932 rushing yards, 1,164 total yards and 12 touchdowns.
