PSU loses high-profile prospect Josh Moten

Penn State’s rough recruiting week got even worse Thursday when yet another high-profile prospect decommitted from the Nittany Lions.

Four-star cornerback Josh Moten announced his decision to decommit, saying he made his initial decision too soon.

“After talking and having deep thought with my family, I think I pulled the trigger too fast. I didn’t equally give some of the universities that have been recruiting me an equal chance,” Moten wrote on Twitter.

Two days ago, Moten’s teammate at National Christian Academy in Maryland, four-star offensive tackle Aaryn Parks, decommitted from Penn State. On Sunday, four star offensive tackle Grant Toutant decommitted from PSU and flipped to Ohio State.

Penn State once had an elite recruiting class, but losing three players in five days has dropped the Lions down to No. 21 in the 247Sports composite rankings for the class of 2020.

This report was compiled by Penn State football beat writer Cory Giger.
