Garrett Sickels commits to Penn State

By MaxPreps' Stephen Spiewak

Garrett Sickels, a 6-foot-4 defensive end from Red Bank Regional (Little Silver, N.J.), committed to Penn State Sunday evening, according to head coach Nick Giglio.

Sickels chose Penn State over a host of other offers including Alabama, Tennessee and Notre Dame.

According to Giglio, a formal announcement will be made on Thursday at Red Bank Regional.

Sickels helped the Central Jersey school to a 5-5 record this past season, making 76 tackles and 10 sacks. He has drawn comparisons to former Florida Gator and current New York Giant Justin Trattou, who starred at Don Bosco Prep.

With Sickels' commitment, two of the top recruits from New Jersey are already off the board, as Eastern Regional defensive back Eli Woodard committed to Ohio State last month.

Defensive tackle Greg Webb and defensive ends Tashawn Bower and Alquadin Muhammad are all receiving national interest but have yet to narrow their choices.

Penn State head coach continues to recruit well, landing early commitments seemingly at a much higher rate than his predecessor. In addition to Sickels, he's gained verbal commitments from defensive back Ross Douglas and quarterback Christian Hackenberg.
