PSU lands 4-star QB Allar from Ohio

Penn State picked up a huge commitment this morning from 4-star quarterback Drew Allar from Medina, Ohio. The 6-foot-5, 220-pounder is rated one of the top 10 pro-style QBs in the country, according to 247Sports.

Allar had a ton of offers from the likes of Notre Dame, Michigan, Pitt, Iowa and a slew of others. He is the second QB to commit to Penn State in the class of 2022, joining 4-star dual-threat Beau Pribula from York, Pa.

Here’s a funny tweet combining a recent PSU hockey meme with this morning’s commitment.

Penn State now has eight commitments for the class of 2022, and all of them are 4-star recruits. The Lions have the No. 5 ranked class in the country for the 2022 cycle, according to 247Sports.

As Derek Levarse of the Wilkes Barre Times-Leader points out, Allar would be the highest-rated quarterback James Franklin will have signed at Penn State, if the QB does indeed follow through on his verbal commitment.

Most programs will take one QB in every recruiting class, but as noted above, Penn State now has two for 2022 with Allar and Pribula.

Allar is the pro-style QB and is not considered a great runner, while Pribula is the more mobile QB.

New PSU offensive coordinator Mike Yurcich typically has utilized more of a pro-style system with a QB who plays from the pocket — think Mason Rudolph at Oklahoma State — but that hasn’t always been the case.

For instance, in 2018, Taylor Cornelius threw for 3,978 yards and 32 TDs for the Cowboys, plus he rushed for 406 yards and 10 TDs. So, Yurcich has worked with that style of quarterback, as well.
