Penn State Target Kaveion Keys to Announce Commitment Friday Morning

Penn State Class of 2023 Target Kaveion Keys, a four-star linebacker from Varina High School in Richmond, Virginia, is announcing his commitment Friday morning at around 8:30 in his high school auditorium, he tweeted Thursday afternoon.

Keys (6-foot-3, 205 pounds) had been committed to North Carolina, but de-committed earlier this month.

Since his de-commitment, Penn State seems to be the favorite to land Keys.

Three of 247Sports’ recruiting analysts; Director of Football Recruiting Steve Wiltfong, National Recruiting Analyst Brian Dohn and Lions247 writer Tyler Calvaruso, have Keys picking Penn State.

Coach James Franklin’s program had been in Keys’  top four, along with North Carolina, Texas A&M and Virginia Tech. Now, Penn State’s odds of landing Keys appear higher than they were in late-August, when he picked North Carolina. If Keys commits to Penn State and subsequently signs on early signing day next Wednesday, Dec. 21, he’ll be the 22nd player to join Penn State’s 2023 Class and the third linebacker. Fellow four-stars Tony Rojas (Fairfax, Virginia) and Ta’Mere Robinson (Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania) both committed in July.

If Keys signs, he’d complete another successful corp for the school known as “LBU.” Penn State’s 2022 recruiting class featured some talented linebackers as well, most notably Abdul Carter, who became one of Penn State’s best players as a true freshman. The Class of ‘22 also featured three-star Keon Wylie , who associate head coach Terry Smith said “may be the best player on the defensive side” on a press conference on early signing day last year.

Keys’ commitment would cap a big week for Penn State recruiting. Defensive ends Joseph Mupoyi and Mason Robinson committed on Monday and Tuesday, respectively.
