Briar Woods' junior wide receiver Brandon Polk committed to Penn State Tuesday.

Polk visited the school over the weekend with Briar Woods' teammate and Penn State signee Trace McSorley and attended a practice.

Although the Nittany Lions had been recruiting Polk for some time, McSorley took it upon himself to make the case for Penn State.

"[Penn State] had me talk to him and see if I could get him to lean toward Penn State," said McSorley, the Falcons' standout quarterback. "When we were up there, we walked around. We didn't say much. The school speaks for itself. He's a good fit and will be comfortable there."

Polk missed the first four games of the 2013 season as he continued to recover from a broken foot he suffered during the summer. When he did return, Polk scored eight total touchdowns for the 5A state runner-up. 

He finished the season with 40 catches for 635 yards and six touchdowns and earned second-team all-state honors. 

In the state final, Polk provided the game's first points off a punt return for a touchdown in the first quarter. But he missed the whole second half with a hip injury.

Polk began the 2013 season with offers already from Virginia, Virginia Tech, Wake Forest, Maryland, ODU and Stanford.

Penn State and Pittsburgh offered Polk in January after he performed well at the U.S Army All-American Combine in San Antonio. 

"I'm real excited to play with him," McSorley said. "He's a dynamic player. He's got a lot of speed."
