Penn State, Maryland miss out on top JUCO DB, who commits to Georgia
Penn State and Maryland had an opportunity to land the top junior college defensive back in the country, but didn’t get the commitment.
On Monday, 4-star defensive back De’Jahn Warren committed to Georgia, picking the Bulldogs over Penn State and Maryland. He had kept the Nittany Lions and Terrapins in his final three a few weeks ago before making a final decision.
It’s UP and It’s STUCK🙏🏾
