2023 4-Star Safety Conrad Hussey Flips From Penn State to Florida State

Conrad Hussey, a Class of 2023 four-star safety and one-time Penn State commit out of St. Thomas Aquinas Academy in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, has committed to Florida State.

Florida State won the recruiting battle for Hussey, which also involved Penn State and Miami.

Hussey (6-foot, 190 pounds) is the No. 47 player in Florida, the No. 19 safety, and the No. 238 player nationally, according to 247Sports. Hussey committed to Penn State in April, and his recruitment among SEC and ACC teams started to heat up.

Hussey, along with his teammate, defensive back King Mack were getting recruited heavily in their home state, but Mack kept his commitment to Penn State.

Hussey went on an official visit Dec. 9 to Florida State. Florida State coach Mike Norvell also made an in-home visit Dec. 12, and it seemed like a flip would be happening. Hussey held off on signing his letter of intent for another day.

What Hussey brings to the table is a versatile safety capable of playing in the box, center field, man-to-man coverage, and in zone coverage. He can play cornerback and both safety positions. In track and field, Hussey ran a 10.90 in the 100-meters and a 23.05 in the 200-meters. He has also helped St. Thomas Aquinas to back-to-back Florida &A state championships. Penn State has 22 players signed to its 2023 class, all doing so Wednesday. Even without Hussy, this cycle has been good for coach James Franklin. All three major recruiting outlets rank Penn State’s Class in the top 15.
