Penn State’s 2021 recruiting class has shrunk by one commitment.
Over the weekend, three-star offensive lineman Nate Bruce announced via Twitter that he will be decommitting from Penn State to evaluate his options. The Nittany Lions are still in the mix to land the Harrisburg native, but he wasn’t prepared to commit to being a member of James Franklin’s 2021 class just yet.
“I want to take my time and really contemplate my other options,” Bruce said on Twitter. “Penn State is one of the greatest & always will be. … This is a tough decision but it’s a smart decision.”
Bruce is a three-star recruit in the 2021 class. The 6-foot-4, 320-pound offensive lineman is ranked as the No. 15 player from Pennsylvania and is listed as the No. 30 offensive guard in the cycle. Per 247Sports Composite rankings, Bruce is one of the top 700 players available.
Bruce initially committed to Penn State in October 2019. He has received offers from five other schools, including Rutgers, Bowling Green, UMass, Toledo and Virginia Tech.
Penn State’s 2021 class currently has just two commitments.
