Penn State Recruiting Another Wyomissing OL: 2024 Tackle Caleb Brewer

Penn State hit a home run in recruiting in this year’s class when they signed five-star offensive lineman J’ven Williams from Wyomissing, Pennsylvania, and now James Franklin and his coaches will be back at Wyomissing High School trying to sign another talented player from that school in the Class of 2024.

Caleb Brewer is a teammate of Williams and a fellow member of Wyomissing’s starting offensive line. The 6-foot-5, 285-pound offensive tackle holds an impressive list of offers such as Boston College, Cincinnati, Illinois, Kentucky, Maryland, Michigan, Nebraska, Notre Dame, Pitt, Rutgers, South Carolina, Syracuse, Tennessee, Virginia Tech, West Virginia and Wisconsin.

Penn State was added to that list yesterday at Junior Day as Brewer got the news from head coach James Franklin. On his drive home from State College, Nittany Sports Now spoke with Brewer and asked where this offer from Penn State ranks with him.

“The offer means a lot. J’ven Williams committed to Penn State and he’s from my high school,” said Brewer. “Him and I are actually really good friends. He and I actually had breakfast together today. I would expect him to become a big recruiter for Penn State because he obviously wants to come there. Penn State is close to home so that makes a big difference.”

Despite having a bunch of other major Power 5 offers, prior to yesterday, Penn State wasn’t one of them. But Brewer found out from Franklin there was a reason for that.

“I kind of expected an offer to come today. I knew that they were interested in me and have been talking to me for a while. The coaches have been telling me that I need to come down and visit so that I could talk to Coach Franklin. I kind of was thinking that it would happen, but I didn’t want to assume anything.

“Coach Franklin was the one that offered me. He just basically said that they waited to offer me in person because they thought it would be more impactful and they were right. Coach Franklin told me that he thinks I would have a real bright future there and that I could be great player for them.”

This was the first extensive time that Brewer has spent with Franklin and not surprisingly, it was something he enjoyed. Their time together actually started on Friday.

“I went to the Penn State wrestling match on Friday and Coach Franklin was there,” said Brewer. “He was all hyped at the match, cheering for the wrestlers and the team. He’s a cool guy and my opinion of him really changed today because I didn’t realize how him, and Penn State are so dedicated to academics for their student athletes. That really made an impression on me. Making sure their players have academic success is something that’s a real priority at Penn State.”

Brewer wouldn’t say that Penn State is his top school but it’s clear they rank pretty high with him. In terms of future visit, Brewer told Nittany Sports Now that he’ll be visiting Michigan on Jan. 28, Pitt sometime in March and Notre Dame on April 1.
