Penn State’s 2013 recruiting class has returned to double digits.
Jordan Smith, a defensive back from Washington, D.C., orally committed to Penn State on Saturday. Smith is the first addition to the 2013 recruiting class since the NCAA levied major sanctions against the school on July 23.
The 6-foot, 180-pound Smith also held offers from Colorado, Kansas and Hawaii. His commitment increases the 2013 recruiting class to 10 players. Smith, rated a two-star prospect by Rivals.com, and Northview (Fla.) High School safety Neiko Robinson give the class two defensive backs.
Smith will play at H.D. Woodson High School this season. He had 64 tackles and two interceptions while playing for Archbishop Carroll of the Washington Catholic League last season.
