Dorian Johnson is still a Penn State commitment -- for now.
“At this point, nothing has changed in his status,” Johnson's high school coach, Aaron Krepps, told ESPN on Tuesday morning just after talking to his star prospect.
Krepps said Johnson is still committed to Penn State despite the harsh NCAA sanctions announced Monday, but added that the family is taking time to think things out. Krepps said Johnson won't be talking to the media anytime soon and that there could be more developments next week.
“I don't think there's any rush,” Krepps said.
Johnson, a 6-foot-6, 285-pound prospect from Belle Vernon (Pa.) High School, is considered the 27th-best prospect in the nation and the second best offensive tackle in the country. He is rated as the second best prospect in Pennsylvania.
Johnson committed to Penn State in June. At the time, he said Pittsburgh was second to Penn State for his services, followed by Ohio State and West Virginia. Johnson is the Nittany Lions' second highest-rated prospect, behind quarterback Christian Hackenberg, the nation's top rated quarterback.
