The good times keep on coming for Penn State.

After defeating Ohio 46-10 on Saturday, the Nittany Lions added a key piece to its future, securing the commitment of three-star cornerback Zion Tracy.

Tracy is the No. 20 player to join James Franklin’s class and ranks as the No. 100 cornerback in the nation, according to the 247 Sports rankings.

With 20 verbal commitments in the current recruiting cycle, Tracy joins a loaded cornerback room with prior commitments from Lamont Payne and Elliot Washington.

The Glen Head, New York, native took his official visit on Saturday and wasted very little time on his commitment to the program.

Tracy offers great speed, and that was displayed when he visited Happy Valley over the summer and ran a 4.35 40-yard dash.

Penn State beat out both Syracuse and Buffalo to secure the speedsters' services.

With the addition of Tracy, the blue and white continue to add to its impressive class that ranks near the top ten in the country.
