Penn State offered a quarterback in 8th grade on Sunday, sending one out to Wyatt Becker from Pasadena, Calif. Becker is in the 2025 recruiting class and comes in at 6-foot-2, 165 pounds, according to his Twitter bio.

James Franklin and Mike Yurcich have been aggressive in offering young quarterbacks. The offer to Becker comes two days after Penn State offered 9th grade QB Jadyn Davis from South Carolina. Davis already has offers from the likes of Alabama, Ohio State and Georgia.

It’s unclear if Becker has any other offers at this point. The Penn State offer seems to be the only one on his Twitter feed. Here’s a good story on Becker being named MVP at an Under Armour Camp in Los Angeles last year. From that story:

Among the rising youth Quarterbacks in the nation is 2025 QB Wyatt Becker, who is making a name for himself as a talented gunslinger.

Becker was recently named MVP at the Under Armour Middle School Camp in Los Angeles.

“It felt great to be honored with that award, because there were so many really good athletes from all over,” Becker told

“And also because of the great coaching names who were there, they were pro’s and great teachers, and it made me feel that all the hard work was paying off, and boosted my confidence since they had all been at such high levels in football,” he added.
