When Spring-Ford High School offensive lineman Ian Harvie picked up an offer to walk-on at Penn State, it seemed clear that he’d accept that offer.
“Since I was a little kid growing up in PA,” Harvie, who lives less than three hours away from State College, told Nittany Sports Now soon after picking up the offer Saturday afernoon, “it’s always been a dream of mine to be offered by Penn State.”
It took less than 48 hours for Harvie to accept the offer, and doing so made 2022 likely his best Easter Sunday ever.

Harvie was also recruited by Bryant, Bucknell, Lafayette and Western Kentucky.
Harvie is 6-foot-3, 270 pounds and looking forward to being a part of Penn State football.
“The atmosphere is crazy and so many people go to their games,” he said. “It means a ton that Coach (James) Franklin, Coach (Phil) Trautwein, and Coach (Frank) Leonard took a chance on me by extending me this offer.”
