Every year, the Lasch Bash is a huge opportunity for Penn State coach James Franklin and his staff to get to see recruits in action as well as for them to experience Happy Valley.
There will be commits from the Class of 2023 in attendance, as well as high-ranking prospects that remain uncommitted.
One uncommitted prospect that is at the Lasch Bash is Zion Tracy, a Class of 2023 three-star recruit out of Oakdale, Connecticut.
Tracy grew up in Hempstead, New York, and went to Long Island Lutheran School for the first three years of his prep career. He’ll be attending St. Thomas More for his senior season
Tracy has offers from Buffalo, Connecticut, Maine, Marshall, Rutgers, Syracuse and Temple.
Nittany Sports Now had an opportunity to talk to Tracy before he visited Penn State and what he wanted to accomplish at the camp.
Tracy spoke to NSN about his transition to playing defensive back for the upcoming season and honing his craft.
“I’ve just switched to defensive back, what I been working hard on,” Tracy said. “I played wide receiver at camp last year, but the coaches told me the wide reiver room is full, so the coaches came to me about playing defensive back.”
Tracy also told NSN that if he received an offer from Penn State, there would be a very strong possibility that he would commit to the Nittany Lions.
“There would be a high chance that I would commit, maybe not on the spot because my parents won’t be there but there is a high probability.” Tracy said. “Penn State is my number one choice.”
In describing himself as a player, Tracy cited his speed and intelligence as keys to his game
“Twitchy, very fast. I have great I.Q.; I can do everything,” he said.
Tracy looks to use the Lasch Bash camp to move up the rankings and impress coaches enough to get the offer that he is looking for.
