Watch: PSU QB Commit Drew Allar’s Final High School Highlights

Medina High School’s season has come to an end with an untimely regional finals loss in the Ohio state playoffs, but five-star quarterback Drew Allar’s football career is just getting started.

Despite a loss to end an unbeaten season, Allar threw for 3,748 yards and 44 touchdowns (four interceptions) on 348-of-398 passing attempts, a 62.3 percent completion percentage. He flashed his dual-threat ability with 497 yards and nine touchdowns on the ground. All stats coming before Medina’s loss to St. Edward last Friday.

Of course, while Allar’s stats pop off the page, it’s even more eye-popping to watch his in-game action.

As the top-ranked quarterback in the 2022 class, according to 247Sports, Allar’s ascent to stardom in the recruiting cycle hasn’t been unsurprising. But it has been much-welcomed news for Penn State fans desperate for a star quarterback in the future.

With incumbent Sean Clifford reaching the end of his collegiate career (although, holding the option to return for one more season), and Ta’Quan Roberson and Christain Veilleux still largely untested with both having received extended action in one game this season, the future of Penn State’s quarterback position is ripe for the taking.

While true freshmen starting at Power Five programs is rare, Allar appears to be the type with the ability to compete for the spot right away — especially if he’s able to enroll in the spring.
