California SF picks Penn State

Penn State landed a verbal commitment from the West Coast on Tuesday night.

According to multiple sources, perimeter player Payton Banks (Orange, Calif./Lutheran) pledged to the Nittany Lions and head coach Pat Chambers. He also held offers from Nevada, Oregon State and Pepperdine, among others.

Banks is the third 2013 recruit for Penn State, joining center Julian Moore (Philadelphia/Germantown Academy) and point guard Geno Thorpe (Orlando, Fla./West Oaks).
