It’s raining at Beaver Stadium, and Senior Day has been kind of a washout emotionally for fans who came to say goodbye to Trace McSorley, et al.
But it has been a significant day for Penn State’s future, as well.
The Nittany Lions got their first verbal commitment from a Class of 2020 prospect on Saturday before the game with Maryland, adding three-star offensive line prospect Grant Toutant.

Toutant is a 6-foot-6, 292-pounder from Warren, Mich., who hit the Nittany Lions’ radar during a camp last year. Rivals.com lists him as a three-star prospect, but those evaluations tend to rise once a player commits to a program this early.
