Penn State Recruiting: Dorian Johnson Decommits, According To Report

Penn State lost another big recruit on Tuesday night as reports surfaced that 2013 offensive tackle prospect Dorian Johnson had decommitted from the Nittany Lions. Johnson was a key four-star recruit expected to anchor the offensive front for Bill O'Brien's once burgeoning 2013 class. Jeremy Sellew of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review first spread the news on Twitter:

As the Trib's Scott Brown noted, Pitt could emerge as the likely landing spot for the Belle Vernon product. The Panthers' offensive coordinator, Joe Rudolph, is a Belle Vernon alum and will continue to work that angle with Johnson. Pitt was originally in Johnson's top two with the Nittany Lions before he made his initial commitment to PSU at the end of June.
