Villanova offered four-star center Dylan Painter. He's expected to cut his list to seven schools later today.

Penn State had reeled in three ESPN 100 players between 2007-2014. With Tony Carr in the fold, they now have three in the past two classes.

Another interesting note is that Tony Carr and ESPN 100 forward Lamar Stevens are very close. Stevens has Penn State among finalists, too.

Tony Carr is Penn State's third 2016 commit -- joining Nazeer Bostick and Joe Hampton. Nittany Lions still looking to add, as well.

Jeff Borzello @jeffborzello

Tony Carr is a huge pickup for Pat Chambers and Penn State. Highest-ranked Nittany Lion commit since ESPN's database started in 2007.
