Three-star wide receiver prospect Will Fuller has decommitted from Penn State in favor of Notre Dame only eight days after visiting Penn State and reaffirming his commitment, according to Ryan Snyder of Blue-White Illustrated.
Fuller, who originally committed to Penn State in June, tweeted, “GREAT time at Penn State! Coach O'Brien made me remember why I committed in the 1st place. I'm 100% committed to the greatest college,” on July 28. He also tweeted, “A Bowl game? I got 108,000 behind me. Not worried about a bowl game.”
The decommitment of the 6-foot-1, 168-pound Fuller, who attends Philadelphia’s Roman Catholic High School, is the second to come since the NCAA levied major sanctions against Penn State’s football program on July 23. It is not known whether the sanctions are the reason for the decommitment.
Penn State’s Class of 2013 now has 11 members, as cornerback Ross Douglas also decommitted on the day the sanctions were levied, later choosing Michigan, and defensive tackle Greg Webb decided to switch his verbal to North Carolina prior to the sanctions being levied.
