Penn State added a 3-star linebacker to their Class of 2022 on Saturday as Keon Wylie gave a verbal commitment to James Franklin and the Nittany Lions.
In the end with over 25+ offers, Wylie (6’3″, 210) selected Penn State over Pitt and Kentucky. This is another big get in this recruiting class for Penn State from a player from the Philadelphia area. Prior to Wylie, 4-star athlete Ken Talley (Northeast High School in Philadelphia) and 4-star offensive lineman Drew Shelton (grew up in Downingtown). The chief recruiters of Wylie for Penn State were Deion Barnes and Kenny Sanders.
Congrats Penn State fans
