2022 PIAA Class-2A 100- and 200-meter dash champ Ethan Black is now a Nittany Lion.

Black, a 2023 wide receiver from Conemaugh Township High in Davidsburg, Pennsylvania, announced on Twitter Wednesday that he has committed to Penn State as a preferred walk-on.

“I am blessed to announce that I have committed to Penn State University where I will be furthering my academic and athletic career. I would like to thank my family, friends, coaches, and teammates for supporting to me.”

Black ran a blazing 10.78 100-meter dash and a 21.45 200-meter dash at the 2022 PIAA track & field championship at Shippensburg University but of course, he was a multi-sport star at Conemaugh Township.

As a senior in 2022, he caught a team-high 56 passes for 884 yards (15.8 yards per catch) and 12 touchdowns, adding 218 yards and three touchdowns on 39 carries.

He played on both sides of the football, racking up 39 tackles (32 solo), three tackles for loss and four interceptions, and adding 518 return yards (418 kick return yards on 20 attempts).

Black made it out to Penn State for a camp visit over the summer, showcasing his ability as a receiver on the football field. With a 5-foot-10, 165-pound frame, he’s an ideal slot receiver.

The opportunity to grow in what is now a deep wide receiver room in Happy Valley provides Black a chance to find a way onto the field in some format to showcase his blazing speed.

He joins four-star wideout Carmelo Taylor (Roanoke, Virginia) and transfers Dante Cephas (Kent State) and Malik McClain (Florida State) as wide receiver additions this offseason.
