Penn State picked up a big prospect Tuesday night when Alex Bacchetta, the No. 1 punter in the nation and No. 7 kicker, announced he’s committed to the Nittany Lions. The 6-foot-3, 200-pounder is from Westminster School in Atlanta.

The rankings are from Kohl’s Kicking, which had this to say about Bacchetta on its website:

Bacchetta had another dominant performance at Kohl’s Underclassman Challenge in January of 2021. His frame and leg speed separates him from the rest of his peers. The ball jumps off his foot. He had an impressive showing in both kicking and punting. Bacchetta’s punting should only get better as he continues to master his drop and rhythm. Bacchetta is currently more mature athletically and just stronger than others his age in both kicking and punting. Bacchetta’s “A” ball is better than anyone else in the 2022 class at this point. He will be a power five scholarship player.

Arkansas and Virginia were the other schools to offer Bacchetta, according to his Kohl’s bio.

Penn State’s current senior punter, Jordan Stout, weighed in with some congratulations for Bacchetta.
