Penn State loses another recruit

Pennsbury lineman decides to go out of state

Offensive tackle J.J. Denman, who verbally committed to Penn State in May, has changed his mind and will instead play for Wisconsin. The 6-6, 305-pound Denman, from Pennsbury High School in eastern PA, is considered one of the top players in the state of Pennsylvania.

He is the third high-profile recruit to de-commit from Penn State, following tackle Jamil Pollard, from West Deptford, N.J., and defensive lineman Jarron Jones, from Aquinas Institute in Rochester, N.Y. Jones will attend Notre Dame, while Pollard has not made a decision.

Denman's commitment to Wisconsin continues a steady flow of Pennsylvania players to the Badgers. He is the third PA player this season to commit to the Big 10 school, joining Mount Lebanon defensive lineman Arthur Goldberg and Shady Side Academy athlete Reggie Mitchell, who committed last spring. Last season, West Allegheny's Mike Caputo matriculated to Wisconsin, and two seasons ago Brashear tight end Manasseh Garner and Erie McDowell linebacker A.J. Fenton chose the Badgers.

Former Wisconsin lineman and Belle Vernon grad Joe Rudolph is the Badgers' primary recruiter in Pennsylvania.
