Penn State Recruiting: Dorian Johnson Still Committed

While many current Penn St. Nittany Lions players and future prospects are beginning to explore their other options following Monday's NCAA sanctions, offensive tackle recruit Dorian Johnson is not rushing to leave the school and may yet end up sticking with the school.

Dave Hooker of ESPN.com reports that Johnson, who is ranked as the second-best offensive tackle prospect in the country, has not decommitted, nor has he made any indication that he will.

"At this point, nothing has changed in his status," Johnson's high school coach, Aaron Krepps, told ESPN on Tuesday morning just after talking to his star prospect.

Krepps said Johnson is still committed to Penn State despite the harsh NCAA sanctions announced Monday, but added that the family is taking time to think things out. Krepps said Johnson won't be talking to the media anytime soon and that there could be more developments next week.

"I don't think there's any rush," Krepps said.

If Johnson sticks at PSU, he will be the second recruit to do so, behind tight end recruit Adam Breneman, who reaffirmed his commitment on Tuesday.
