Penn State Football Recruiting: Nittany Lions Land 2nd Linebacker Commit Of The Day

The Penn State Nittany Lions added their second linebacker commit of the day from three-star Philadelphia (PA) Imhotep Charter outside linebacker Shaka Toney, adding him to the mix with four-star Potomac (MD) Paint Branch outside linebacker Cameron Brown.

“It feels like home and they are committed to my betterment as a player and they are committed to my family and education,” he said to 247Sports this week

Toney committed to Penn State a few weeks ago, but he waited to make his public announcement until today's Lasch Bash -- Penn State's recruiting barbeque set to be held later this afternoon.

“I don't think here is a better place to announce than Penn State and at a event where most of the commits are there and our families and future commits,” he said. “I think it's best for me and my family to feel there love of me coming to PSU.”

The #22 overall player in the state of Pennsylvania for the Class of 2016 (according to 247Sports), Toney is listed as a weak-side defensive end but projects as an outside linebacker at the next level.
