He’s the second member of Penn State’s Class of 2015 from Pennsylvania to commit this month. Archbishop Wood’s offensive lineman Ryan Bates committed earlier this month.

The 5-foot-11, 190-pound running back rushed for 1,500 yards and a single-season record 23 touchdowns. He caught 21 passes for 353 yards and three touchdowns.

He originally gave a verbal commitment to Rutgers last September. Other schools recruiting him are Boston College, Connecticut, North Carolina and Pittsburgh.

According to, Barkley, a 2015 recruit is currently ranked the number 21 running back in the country and is ranked 7th in Pennsylvania.

    Kid’s a stud. Penn State already has 4 verbals in the 2015 class:

    Ryan Bates OL Rivals 4 star 6-5 285 PA
    Saquon Barkley RB Rivals 4 star 5-11 190 PA
    Kamonte Carter ATHRivals 4 star 6-4 230 MD
    Jarvis Miller DB Rivals 3 star 6-2 185 CT

    So far shaping up to be very fine class. A couple big “gets” and it could be a monster class.
