Penn State has recruited another high-profile talent to its 2025 recruiting class.

Max Granville, a consensus four-star defensive end/linebacker from Fort Bend Christian Academy in Texas, verbally committed to the Nittany Lions on Monday night.

Granville, one of Penn State’s top defensive targets for the 2025 cycle, chose the Nittany Lions over Oklahoma, Texas A&M, USC, and Baylor. He has also had offers from Alabama, Georgia, LSU, Michigan, and Ohio State, among others.

Granville is the sixth commit Penn State has signed in the last week. Jahmir Joseph and Antonio Branch Jr., both four-star defensive backs, have committed ahead of the weekend. The Nittany Lions signed four-star Imhotep tailback Jabree Wallace-Coleman on Saturday. On Sunday, four-star edge rusher Cortez Harris and athlete Braswell Thomas chose Penn State.

Granville is the 18th member of Penn State’s 2025 recruiting class, which was ranked 11th nationally before Granville’s decision, according to 247 Sports.

This is a huge addition for James Franklin, defensive line coach Deion Barnes, and the rest of the staff. Granville is ranked as high as the 109th overall prospect in the class, according to ESPN. Some recruiting websites classify him as a defensive end, while others consider him a linebacker. Regardless, Granville’s size (6-foot-3, 225 pounds) and talent are evident.

Granville paid a visit to Penn State to begin his busy June. Then he visited USC, Texas A&M, and finished his official period at Oklahoma. Many people thought the Sooners were the clubhouse leaders for a spell. But, at this point, Granville is a Nittany Lion.
