4-star CB Daryus Dixson commits to Penn State

Penn State picked up a commitment from four-star cornerback Daryus Dixson on Monday following his official weekend visit to the campus.

Dixson plays at Southern California powerhouse Mater Dei, and the 247Sports composite ranks him as the No. 10 overall cornerback in the Class of 2025.

He announced his decision with a video posted to social media.

“It is about family there,” Dixson told On3. “That was big, and the relationships are genuine, so that had an impact on my decision. Then it was about player development. That is big for me, too. I trust in the coaches and believe they can get me to where I want to be.”

He continued: “When I got out there and saw everything with my family, it looked good, the relationships were strong and I decided Penn State was where I wanted to be.”

He also credited the rapport he already has built with head coach James Franklin as well as Penn State’s academics.

Dixson is the 14th — and highest-rated — player to commit to the Nittany Lions’ 2025 class. The 247Sports composite ranks Penn State’s class as No. 11 in the nation and third in the Big Ten behind No. 1 Ohio State and No. 5 Southern California.

He chose Penn State over Washington and Tennessee, per On3.
