Shortly after adding landing a commitment from Zuriah Fisher, Penn State's football program lost a commit from its 2020 recruiting class, in offensive lineman RJ Adams.

Penn State has put together an impressive recruiting class that currently holds 25 commits. According to 247Sports’ recruiting rankings, the Nittany Lions have the No. 14 overall recruiting class and the third-best class in the Big Ten.

While the coaching staff at Penn State continues to improve its recruiting class, it appears that Adams, a three-star, is no longer committed to the program.

Adams announced his commitment to Penn State back in April, but it seems the Virginia native has changed his mind.

247Sports is reporting that Adams decommitted from the program on Sept. 16, which is three days after his official visit to Kentucky. Perhaps that played a role in his decision.

The most interesting part from this entire situation is that Adams hasn't officially announced that he's decommit from Penn State.

RJ Adams is the No. 15 offensive guard and No. 9 recruit from Virginia in his class, per 247Sports.

On top of Penn State, Adams has offers from Alabama, Kentucky, LSU and other notable programs.

Losing any recruit is usually an unfortunate blow for most programs, but the Nittany Lions have five commitments from 2020 offensive linemen.
