Penn State went into Rutgers territory to grab its 16th commitment of the Class of 2015 as defensive back Myles Hartsfield made an oral pledge on Sunday morning to the Nittany Lions.

The 5-foot-10, 180-pounder narrowed his college choices last week to Rutgers and Penn State. He attends Central Jersey's Sayreville High School, which is less than 10 miles from Rutgers' campus. Hartsfield also had offers from Cincinnati, Georgia Tech, Pittsburgh, Syracuse, Temple, West Virginia, and others.

Along with football, Hartsfield plays basketball and runs track at Sayreville. Rivals.com ranks him as a three-star recruit and the No. 10 Class of 2015 prospect in New Jersey. - Matt Breen
