Penn State’s 2024 recruiting class is looking solid thus far; it has ten hard commits thus far and ranks No. 8 according to the 247 Sports Composite rankings. Over the weekend, four-star cornerback target Ju’Juan Johnson decommitted from Colorado and is now back on the market and turning heads nationally. During his initial recruitment, Penn State football was targeting Johnson, and he could be a name to watch throughout the remainder of spring and summer.

Penn State football has assembled an impressive 2024 recruiting class thus far and is trending for several top-ranked recruits that are set to commit over the summer. On Sunday, four-star cornerback target Ju’Juan Johnson, one of the class’s top-ranked cornerbacks, announced that he is no longer committed to Deion Sanders’ Colorado football program. Penn State football missed out the first time around and could be looking to reassert itself as a contender in his recruitment now that it is back open.

Ju’Juan Johnson is a 247 Sports Composite four-star cornerback target and is ranked as the No. 236 recruit in the nation, the No. 19 athlete in the class, and the No. 6 recruit in the state of Louisiana. Here is Johnson’s statement per On3:

“First and Foremost I would like to thank The University of Colorado for believing in me. I would like to thank Coach Prime, Coach Corey, Coach Mathis, and every other coach who continues to have a hand in recruiting me and for believing in my abilities. After further thoughts, prayers, and conversations with my family, I’ve decided to decommit from the University of Colorado for now and open my recruitment back up. Colorado is still a top school and will still be highly considered as I continue to navigate through this process.”
