Avon (OH) cornerback Ross Douglas has decommitted from Penn State. The three-star athlete made his decision to commit to the Nittany Lions last February, but will now reopen his recruitment.

Ross Douglas was the second commit to the 2013 Penn State recruiting class, pledging to the Nittany Lions last February, but the three-star cornerback has decommitted from the program.

"Ross has decomitted from Penn State and we have reopened his recruitment," Robert Douglas, the player's father, stated Monday morning. "We have great respect for Penn State head coach Bill O'Brien and his coaching staff, and we wish them nothing but success. Going forward, neither Ross or myself will have any comment on the current Penn State situation."

Douglas, 5-foot-11, 180-pounds, had attracted nearly 20 offers before deciding to commit to Penn State. He stars on both sides of the football for Avon, but projects as a cornerback at the next level.

The player visited Nebraska unofficially last weekend, and will go to Wisconsin this weekend to meet with the Badger coaching staff. The Douglas family was unsure about any other possible visits.
