Patrick Chambers has added another piece to his 2012 class.
Sources have confirmed Penn State has received a verbal commitment from Reading (Pa.) Berks Catholic forward Donovon Jack.
The 6-foot-9 Jack originally committed and signed his letter of intent to Duquesne, but was released in April after the Dukes head coach was let go after the conclusion of the 2011-12 season.
The 200-pound power forward averaged a double-double this season, putting up 17 points per game, in addition to grabbing over 10 boards a contest.
The agile power forward can run the floor well for a player his size, but also has some well-practiced post moves down low. Jack is projected to play down low at the next level, but could stand to add a few pounds to his frame.
Penn State head coach Pat Chambers originally recruited Jack when he was the coach at Boston University.
Jack’s commitment brings Penn State’s 2012 class to three total players, with guard Akosa Maduegbunam and small forward Brandon Taylor already signed. Penn State now has three scholarships open this fall, and two open for the class of 2013.
