Posted: March 05, 2012

PENN STATE and new coach Bill O'Brien have reeled in another four-star recruit for the Class of 2013, according to reports.

Defensive end Garrett Sickels, from Little Silver, N.J., gave a verbal commitment to the Nittany Lions on Saturday.

Sickels, 6-4, 225, is ranked as the 50th-best player in the nation. As a senior at Red Bank Regional, he had 11 sacks and 76 total tackles.

"I strongly believe in the values Coach Paterno set forth," Sickels told Blue White Illustrated. "Really winning games with great student-athletes, competing in all the different ways they do. I really love that and I love that coach O'Brien is going to keep that going.

"I really want to be a part of the new era of Penn State football."

He joins Ohio athlete Ross Douglas and Virginia quarterback Christian Hackenberg as the three juniors who have committed to PSU.
