James Franklin added another member to his 2019 recruiting class Sunday.
Lance Dixon, a 6-2, 201-pound linebacker out of Michigan, picked Penn State over offers from Wisconsin, Iowa, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Michigan and Texas A&M, among others.
He announced his commitment in a video with 247 Sports, which ranks him the seventh-best player in Michigan and the 16th-best outside linebacker in the class of 2019.
Dixon, out of West Bloomfield High School, is the 10th player to commit to Franklin’s Nittany Lions for 2019.
