Jackson Pryts Commits to Penn State As A Walk-On

On Thursday evening, Jackson Pryts announced that he’s committed to Penn State as a walk-on. Pryts is a Class of 2022 two-way player out of Hickory High School in Hermitage, PA. He also plays on the Hickory Hornets basketball team. 

Pryts played in 11 games for the Hornets last season catching 39 passes for 631 yards and nine touchdowns playing wide receiver and tight end on offense. Defensively, he recorded 113 tackles, two sacks, and two interceptions. 

Pryts was named to the PIAA All State team at linebacker, and also is a finalist for the Northwest Pennsylvania Offensive Player of the Year Award. 

 He chose the Nittany Lions over Pittsburgh and Cornell, in no small part because he wants to follow in his father’s footsteps in wearing the Penn State uniform. Ed Pryts was a stand-out linebacker at Penn State from 1978-81 and was the key cog in the effort to shut down Heisman Trophy winner Marcus Allen and the USC Trojans in the Fiesta Bowl. 

Pryts will try to find a fit with the Nittany Lions, and he has a chance to contribute because he can play on either side of the ball.
