The verbals keep rolling in, as West Deptford(NJ) defensive lineman Jamil Pollard committed to Penn State today, according to BWI ($ - info in the teaser)*. Pollard is the No. 40 defensive tackle on Scout.com, and the No. 18 DT on Lion247.com.

Pollard claimed offers from Alabama, Iowa, Florida, Rutgers and a few others besides Penn State. Linebackers coach Ron Vanderlinden reeled him in after visiting this weekend with a score of other highly rated recruits.

Here's Pollard's highlight reel:

Last season, Pollard made 58 tackles, 4 sacks, and forced three fumbles.

And of course, what would a verbal commit announcement be without a little Goo Punch!

*Pollard's verbal was first reported by Lions247. However, the story was/is behind a paywall. BWI's story was premium content as well, but BWI at least put Pollard's name in the story teaser. 247's story didn't offer enough non-premium info for us to link to that story without divulging info that was restricted behind a paywall.
