In-State QB Karson Kiesewetter Commits to Penn State as a Preferred Walk-On

Karson Kiesewetter, a Class of 2023 in-state standout athlete has committed to Penn State as a preferred walk-on.

Kiesewetter plays quarterback for Bishop Guilfoyle Catholic High School in Altoona, Pennsylvania. He put up nice stats this season completing 131 of 199 passes for 2,018 yards and 18 touchdowns, and seven interceptions. He added 1,560 yards on 224 carries (7.0 yards per carry), and 31 touchdowns. On defense, he recorded 61 tackles and two interceptions in his career.

Kiesewetter announced that he got a preferred walk-on offer from coach Rashad Elby on Tuesday, after making a visit to Penn State last weekend.

Kieswetter is a dual-threat quarterback that also plays defensive back so if he does decide to switch to defensive back in the future, he has the ability to do so. He already knows how to play on special teams as evidenced by averaging 23.6 yards a kickoff return and blocking a field goal and a punt while he was playing high school.

Penn State is loaded at quarterback with scholarship players Drew Allar, Beau Pribula, and incoming freshman three-star Jaxon Smolik from Iowa. Penn State also has A.J. Locke and Jack Lambert, who are also walk-on quarterbacks.

Kiesewetter will have a chance to prove his worth in his versatility in all three phases of the game as he runs on to Penn State.
