Fourth Verbal

Penn State just got their fourth verbal commitment for the class of 2007. Jon Ditto from Gateway High School in Monroeville, PA has committed to playing college football for the Nittany Lions.

Ditto stands at 6'3" and 221 lbs and runs a 4.55 40-yard dash. Penn State coaches envision using Ditto as a flex TE. His size presents problems for smaller defensive backs while his speed will prevent most teams from covering him one-on-one with a linebacker. rates him a four star prospect and the #11 TE in the nation. Rivals has not yet ranked him but lists him as a WR.

In his junior year, Ditto had 29 catches for 508 yards and 5 TD's. He earned second team Class AAAA Associated Press All-State and third team PA Football News All-State honors. Ditto passed on offers from Michigan, Ohio State, Michigan State, Minnesota, Tennessee, Pitt, and Maryland.

Jon joins the Nittany Lion family along with previous recruits Nathan Stupar, Josh Marks, and Chris Colasanti and his former High School teamate Justin King. Welcome aboard, Jon.
