Penn State received some disappointing news on the recruiting front.
On Thursday, four-star offensive tackle Antwan Reed announced that he has decommitted from Penn State and will reopen his recruitment. He originally committed to the program in April 2017.
Reed made the announcement through his Twitter account.
A HUGE thanks to the Penn State coaching staff this has been a blessed opportunity and looking forward to what god has planned for me 🙏🏽☝🏽❤️ pic.twitter.com/3hWRZXHrpi

Reed is considered to be one of the top 20 offensive tackles in the 2018 class and is ranked as the No. 51 overall player from Michigan. The four-star lineman cracks the top 300 for 247Sports.
In addition to Penn State, Reed had offers from five other B1G schools: Michigan, Michigan State, Indiana, Minnesota and Nebraska. Outside the conference, he received offers from Notre Dame, Florida, Georgia and Virginia Tech.
With Reed decommitting, Penn State now has 20 members of its 2018 recruiting class. Before losing the four-star tackle, the Nittany Lions’ class ranked second in the B1G and fifth in the nation.
