The news just gets better and better for the Penn State football program.

On the heels of news that many of the team's best draft-eligible players will be participating in the Citrus Bowl against Kentucky, the Nittany Lions got wind that they'll have one of the best defensive end recruits in the country for 2019.

On Monday afternoon, WDE Adisa Isaac announced that he'll be committing to Penn State in the Class of 2019.

247Sports rates Isaac as the No. 79 prospect in the country, the No. 4 WDE, and the No. 1 prospect from the state of New York.

According to Roar Lions Roar, Isaac chose Penn State over the University of Miami (FL).

Among the litany of teams that made offers for Isaac were Alabama, Michigan, LSU, Florida, and Texas A&M.

Isaac made his official visit back in September before Penn State's game against Ohio State, but had reportedly taken a look at the campus and the facilities several times in the past year.
