Penn State is on his top 12 list of schools along with Illinois, Michigan, Michigan State, Northwestern, Nebraska USC (both the Gamecocks and the Trojans), Virginia Tech, and Oklahoma.
However, according to all of the recruiting websites the 6-3, 230-pound linebacker and running back out of Pennridge High School in Perkasie, PA has Penn State on top of his list.
This will be the fourth visit for Picciotti who visited Happy Valley last summer, attended the White Out game against Auburn on Sept. 18, and also attended their home game against Indiana on Oct. 2.
Picciotti recorded 144 tackles (19 for loss), one sack and two forced fumbles in 2021 on defense. On offense he averaged six yards per carry on his way to making the Writer’s Choice First Team All-State, as well as First-Team All-Suburban One League.
