Penn State football has sent photo edits to 2024 OL/DL Logan Demchyk (6-foot-3, 305-pounds) from Malvern Prep in West Chester, Pennsylvania.
While he has yet to receive an official offer from the school, the edits suggest that he is being pursued. Wake Forest is another school interested in Demchyk.

Update (1:20 p.m.) –
Penn State football has offered 2024 DL Jayden Jackson (6-foot-2, 300-pounds) from IMG Academy in Bradenton, Florida. Jackson isn’t yet rated in recruiting sites, likely because his class is still two years away.
Jackson right now only has three offers in Central Michigan, Penn State and Vanderbilt.
After having a great conversation with @ZemaitisTouch_ I am proud to announce that I have received another official offer from @PennStateFball. I want to thank the staff for recruiting me, and my mom most of all. pic.twitter.com/TuURirhjTd

The Penn State men’s soccer team (1-1-1) defeated No. 18 West Virginia (1-2) this past weekend in a close 3-2 battle. It’s an impressive win for Penn State, as West Virginia was ranked No. 6 in the entire country early last week before losing 3-0 to No. 7 Pittsburgh.
Penn State won by scoring two goals within the last 15 minutes of play. Liam Butts (75:30) and Peter Mangione (79:53) scored those two goals, the latter coming on a penalty kick. Mangione had two goals in the game, previously scoring in the first to knot things up at one apiece.
