As we wrap up the regular season, Penn State plays Michigan State this weekend to keep their New Year’s Six Bowl hopes alive.
Additionally, James Franklin and the rest of the coaching staff have been busy on the recruiting path throughout the season.
Penn State will have a key player attending state college this weekend. He lives in Pennsylvania but is currently involved with a Big 12 school. He’s a 2023 wide receiver, and if Franklin can bring him home to represent his home state, that would be great.
Penn State also has a key quarterback recruit who would be a great addition if he signs for Penn State. They lost Marcus Stokes, who emigrated to Florida and was recently stripped of his scholarship.
We’ve spent this season looking at the prospects through 2024.
This week we have three different players from classes 2023 and 2024. Who are you? Let’s take a closer look.
Jayden Bradford – 2024 4-Star QB
We’ve featured Jayden Bradford here before, but it’s worth noting that he recently published his top four schools, with Penn State making the list. The Nittany Lions face off against Louisville, South Carolina and NC State.
BREAKING: Four-star QB Jayden Bradford is down to 4️⃣ schools!

As of now, Bradford has a crystal ball prediction at Penn State. Bradford hails from South Carolina and if the Gamecocks finish this season strong it will be interesting to see if that would affect Bradford’s decision.
Damon Wilson – 2023 5 Star Edge Rusher
Damon Wilson currently has a crystal ball prediction for the state of Ohio. The Florida edge rusher has a number of schools that are interested in him, and Penn State is one of them. This could make it more difficult for the Nittany Lions to compete against other schools involved. But if they could land Wilson it would be a tremendous asset to James Franklin.
Rodney Gallager – 2023 4 Star WR
Yes, Rodney Gallagher is already committed to West Virginia and has been since May. However, he recently scheduled a visit to Penn State, scheduled for this weekend. Gallagher hails from Pennsylvania, so it will be interesting to see if James Franklin can lure him back to his home state. While there’s a decent possibility of Penn State missing two receivers after this year, Parker Washington and Mitchell Tinsley, Gallagher would be a huge addition to this wide receiver room’s future.
