Penn State Football Recruiting

No joking around: PSU commit Ken ‘The Joker’ Talley shuts down recruitment

A third high-profile prospect in eight days has reaffirmed his commitment to Penn State while shutting down his recruitment. Ken Talley, who goes by the nickname “The Joker,” has long been a strong PSU commit, and now the 4-star defensive end is letting everyone know that he’s no longer available in recruiting.

Talley is a 6-foot-3, 230-pound defensive end from Northeast High School in Philadelphia. He’s rated the No. 9 prospect in Pennsylvania for the class of 2022 and has been committed to Penn State since September.

Talley had some fun with Penn State fans when he announced he was decommitting — doing so on April 1. Of course, it was an April Fool’s Day joke, and he tweeted not long after that “I bleed blue.”

Talley joins 4-star wide receiver Kaden Saunders and 4-star tight end Jerry Cross in saying he is “locked in” to his commitment to PSU over the past eight days. The trio is part of the Nittany Lions’ No. 6 recruiting class for 2022.
