It’s well known that Penn State head football coach James Franklin is on record saying he plans to dominate Pennsylvania recruiting and the 2015 class is starting to become that.
Whitehall’s RB Saquon Barkley and Archbishop Wood’s OL Ryan Bates committed earlier this month. Now joining those two from Pennsylvania players are Great Valley’s DE Ryan Buchholz and Archbishop Wood’s LB Jake Cooper.
Both players announced their commitment today via twitter.
Buchholz said, “I am blessed to say I have committed to play football at Penn State! #WeAre #107kStrong #FOE15!”
Buchholz is ranked 26th strong side defensive end prospect and 15th in Pennsylvania according to 247sports.com.
The 6-foot-6, 230-pound defensive end had offers from schools like Boston College, Duke, Maryland, Pittsburgh, and West Virginia.
He was a key player for the Patriots who finished 8-3 in 2013.
Cooper said, “We Are!!”.
The 6-foot-2, 220-pound linebacker is currently ranked the 27th best inside linebacker prospect and 19th overall in Pennsylvania according to 247sports.com.
He had offers from schools like Northwestern, Pittsburgh, Boston College, Duke, Rutgers, Syracuse, Temple and Vanderbilt.
His team finished 13-2 and won the 2013 PIAA Class 3A title.
