Franklin flips another Vandy commit

Haley committed to Penn State on Monday.

Penn State has flipped its second Vanderbilt commitment of the day. On the heels of landing a pledge from Ashburn (Va.) Briar Woods quarterback Trace McSorley, Atlanta (Ga.) Lovett School defensive back Grant Haley has committed to the Nittany Lions.

He did so while on campus for an unofficial visit this weekend.

"I just committed to Penn State," he said on Monday afternoon. "I committed after seeing their campus and looking around, seeing the stadium and seeing how it's a great fit for me, personally."

Haley originally committed to head coach James Franklin at Vanderbilt in July. He followed the new coach to Penn State when he took the lead post for the Nittany Lions.

"He thinks that I can come up and do some things my freshman year and become part of this program just like he did," he said. "They want me to play corner, kick return and punt return."

Haley will return next weekend for his official visit.
