Today, Penn State football earned a new commitment in the 2024 recruiting cycle. The Nittany Lions added four-star safety Vaboue Toure out of Irvington High School in New Jersey. Earlier this week, Penn State lost the commitment of Deryc Plazz, making today’s new commit a nice piece of positive news for the Blue and White ahead of a big recruiting weekend.

This new commitment for Penn State football is significant as it adds another talented player to their already strong secondary group in the 2024 recruiting cycle. Furthermore, it brings another highly sought-after prospect to the Nittany Lions’ class, which currently ranks among the top 5 classes in the nation, trailing only Michigan (2) and Ohio State (3) in the composite rankings.

According to the ON3 rankings, Vaboue Toure, the latest Penn State football commit, is a four-star safety from Irvington, New Jersey. He is ranked as the No. 133 recruit in his class, the No. 9 safety, and the No. 4 recruit in his state. Standing at nearly 6-foot-1 and weighing around 190 pounds with one more year of high school to go, he is expected to be in ideal size and form for Penn State by 2024.

Vaboue Toure has long been a top target for Penn State football in the 2024 cycle, making today’s announcement a significant victory for head coach James Franklin and his coaching staff.
