Georgia defensive back announces Penn State commitment

The Nittany Lions have received the 10th verbal commitment to their 2013 recruiting class. 

Kasey Gaines, an undersized safety and receiver from Grayson High in Loganville, Ga., apparently told the Penn State staff of his decision last week but just made it public. 

The 5-foot-10, 160-pound senior also held offers from Harvard, Howard, VMI and Presbyterian. He apparently was receiving some interest from Wisconsin and Florida International, among others. 

Defensive coordinator Ted Roof’s southern ties may have helped land Georgia defensive back Kasey Gaines. Gaines made his commitment public Wednesday.



Though not highly recruited, Gaines was able to show off his speed and athleticism at one of the Penn State summer camps in June. 

He is the third defensive back prospect in this class, joining Washington, D.C. cornerback Jordan Smith and Century, Fla. corner Neiko Robinson. 

Each is rated as only a two-star prospect (out of five) by Scout.com.
