4-Star QB, Florida State Commit Luke Kromenhoek Talks Continued Interest From Penn State

Junior 4-star quarterback Luke Kromenhoek is committed to Florida State and has been so since last March, But that hasn’t stopped top programs such as Penn State from recruiting him.

Offensive coordinator Mike Yurcich extended Kromenhoek an offer from Penn State back in May, and earlier this week, Yurcich and head coach James Franklin took to trip to visit him in person.

On Tuesday, the Penn State duo traveled to Savannah, Georgia, to attend Kromenhoek’s high school basketball game.

Nittany Sports Now had the chance to talk with Kromenhoek about where things stand with his recruitment. Is he still totally committed to Florida State? We got his thoughts on the recruiting effort that Penn State is making to get him to reconsider his decision.

“They’re really trying to create a relationship with me and with my family,” Kromenhoek said. “They really made an attempt to know me and are always asking how me and my family are doing. As we talked, they’re attempting to find a time that works for both parties that I will get a chance to come up there to visit.”

Kromenhoek said Franklin and Yurcich coming all the way to Georgia to see him play basketball was “unbelievable.”

“For them to come to my basketball game, it showed a lot about them and that they really do mean business in terms of recruiting me,” he said. “It was definitely a good sight to see. I didn’t get a chance to talk to them on that visit because they had to book right out of there and catch a flight back, but I did have a text exchange with Coach Yurcich the next day.”

This wasn’t his first conversation with coaches from Penn State, and he’s had plenty of time to research them. We asked Kromenhoek to name the biggest thing that intrigues him about the Penn State program.

“I would say the family program that they are,” Kromenhoek said. “I went to the White Out game against Minnesota, and it was just an unbelievable experience, and I think Coach Franklin does an unbelievable job running that program. I really get the sense that the Penn State football program is really one big family, and they definitely made that known when I was there.”

247 Sports ranks Kromenhoek as one of the top 10 junior quarterbacks and a top 100 recruit in the country. Despite his commitment to Florida State, he holds offers from Penn State, Ole Miss, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Central Florida, Florida, Virginia and Virginia Tech.

With all this national interest, especially from Penn State, where does his recruitment currently stand?

“I’m on great terms with Florida State,” he said. “I’m still super solid to Florida State. I let them know anytime something happens when I talk to anyone or anyone offers. We have a great relationship, but at the same time, college football is a business. Anything can happen; anyone can leave, programs can come crashing to the ground, and stuff like that. I think it’s good, and it’s important to build relationships with other coaches and other programs. That’s kind of what I’m doing with Penn State, just in case something goes wrong.”
