Penn State QB Commit Drew Allar Elevated to Five-Star Status

Penn State may be figuring out what to do without incumbent starter Sean Clifford right now, but the future of the position is in very, very capable hands.

Five-star quarterback Drew Allar from Medina High School in Medina High School has been one of the top quarterbacks in the 2022 cycle for some time now, but he’s officially a five-star recruit and the No. 1 quarterback in the class, according to 247Sports.

Fresh off a 70-7 throttling of Lorain High School in which Allar threw for 311 yards and five touchdowns on 14-of-17 attempts, he’s guided Medina to a 9-0 record and a top five in-state ranking.

Through nine games, he’s thrown for 2,937 yards (14.7 yards per attempt) and 31 touchdowns on 200-of-306 attempts. He’s also rushed for 251 yards and six more touchdowns on 78 attempts. He leads the Battling Bees in the air and on the ground.

Allar is ahead of Clemson commit Cade Klubnik, Texas A&M commit Conner Weigman and Alabama commit Ty Simpson, a class suddenly wide open after top quarterback Quinn Ewers reclassified to the 2021 class.

Rivals isn’t as high on Allar, having him ranked as the 195th national recruit (11th pro-style quarterback and seventh quarterback from Ohio), but it’s clear Allar is the type of game-changing modern college quarterback that teams need to compete for a national title.

With a 6-foot-5, 230-pound frame and a strong arm, Allar should compete for a starting spot early in his college career.
