Penn State football is off to another quick start in recruiting as they’ve already received six commitments for their Class of 2023, including four 4-star recruits, the latest being defensive end Neeo Avery from Olney, Maryland.
While his recruitment isn’t over yet, the Nittany Lions are in the running for yet another highly rated athlete from the Sunshine State.
Over the weekend, 4-star wide receiver Bryson Rodgers (Wesley Chapel, Florida) released his Top 7 and it included Penn State, along with Alabama, Georgia, Rutgers, Florida State, Michigan and Iowa State. Along with those schools, Rodgers also holds offers from Washington, Florida, Georgia Tech, Houston, Kentucky, Louisville, Michigan State, Ole Miss, Mississippi State, NC State, Oregon, South Carolina, Central Florida, Utah, Virginia Tech and West Virginia.
“It was hard decision to get my list of schools down to just seven,” Rodgers tells Nittany Sports Now. “But it was something that I wanted to do so that I could begin lining up my five official visits. What really stood out about Penn State is their loyalty. Penn State has always been a dream school of mine, since I’m originally from Ohio. I loved both Penn State and Ohio State growing up. With them being a dream school of mine and having the opportunity to go there on a full scholarship is a once in a lifetime blessing. That’s a big reason they made my list. Plus, I took a visit up there for the White Out game this season and it was a very memorable moment being up there.”

The 6-foot-2, 175-pound wideout is versatile, as he’s able to line up both inside and outside for his team. Despite his size, Rodgers has the speed to run by defenders and is a mismatch for most cornerbacks. This past season, he collected 42 catches for 645 yards.
“Penn State is telling me that I fit the Jahan Dotson type role as a big playmaker and sure-handed receiver. They want to fit me into their scheme and believe that because I’m able to lineup both inside and outside, I’d give defenses trouble all night.”
“I want to start scheduling some visits but right now, my main priority is my off-season training,” said Rodgers. “But I will be talking with my family about determining where those five precious official visits will be to. Also, I will be looking soon to decide on which Junior Days I will be attending. My top priority is to find where the best fit will be for me.”
