Remind me again how Penn State can't recruit? In less than 24 hours, Penn State has picked up its second and third verbal commitments for the 2012 class, as Sean Fitz is reporting that Brent Wilkerson from DeMatha High outside of Washington, DC gave his verbal commitment to the Nittany Lions tonight.

Wilkerson had offers from pretty much every major power school east of Tornado Alley. So you can figure why this is a great commitment.

Jeff had Wilkerson as a tight end, but with PSU really thin at defensive end, don't be at all surprised if he gets some reps there in his career, if not a complete switch over to defense.

Here's Wilkerson's highlight reel:
