Penn State football lands 20th verbal commit in 2020 class

Michael Love

The Penn State football program continues to add to its 2020 verbal commitment list.

Bryce Mostella, a 6-foot-6, 230-pound weak-side defensive end from Kentwood High School in Grand Rapids, Mich., gave a verbal commitment to the Nittany Lions on Friday.

Rivals ranks Mostella three stars. He made an official visit to Penn State on June 7 and did the same at Big 10 rival Iowa on June 21.

He received two dozen Division I offers, including ones from schools such as Michigan, Minnesota, Ohio State, Northwestern, Wisconsin and Auburn.

Mostella’s announcement comes on the heels of Tuesday’s verbals from Virginia’s Joseph Johnson, a Rivals three-star defensive back from Chester Life Christian Academy; and Texas’ Parker Washington, a four-star wide receiver from Fort Bend Travis High School.

On Wednesday, the Nittany Lions got a verbal commitment from three-star tight end prospect Tyler Warren, a quarterback who de-committed from Virginia Tech.

Penn State’s 2020 class of verbal commitments now numbers 20. The Nittany Lions are 11th on Rivals’ latest 2020 team rankings list.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
