Penn State Adds Commitment from 2022 WR/TE Kolt Pearce

Penn State’s 2022 class is loaded with skill players, landing the top-ranked running back and fifth-ranked wide receiver, and another skill player has now committed to Nittany Lions head coach James Franklin’s class.

2022 wide receiver/tight end Kolt Pearce from Gilman School in Baltimore, Maryland has committed to walking on at Penn State, over interest from Harvard, Maryland, Houston, Northwestern, Vanderbilt and Yale. Pearce (6-foot-6, 195 pounds) is a big target for future Lions’ quarterbacks.

Pearce made a trip out to State College, Pa. for the Lions’ contest against Illinois, the infamous nonuple overtime game, and while it ended poorly for the Lions, he came away with an offer from Franklin and the Lions.

Pearce is a big-bodied combo wideout/tight end for Gilman, helping in leading the Greyhounds to a 4-4 record this season. For a taller receiver, Pearce possesses excellent speed and body control that could help him work toward a scholarship from the Lions.

With Pearce’s commitment, the Lions are once again back to 26 recruits in 2022’s third-ranked recruiting class. He joins a class that features four-star wide receiver Kaden Saunders, four-star wide receiver Anthony Ivey, four-star tight end Jerry Cross and three-star wide receiver Tyler Johnson.
