The recruiting trajectory of Ryan Cory continued to rise this afternoon as he landed another big offer.

The 2024 three-star offensive lineman from Pine-Richland High School in Western Pennsylvania left Penn State’s Junior Day with an offer. Cory (6-foot-4, 290 pounds) received the news from Nittany Lions offensive line coach Phil Trautwein and Pittsburgh area recruiter Terry Smith.

Penn State joins Pitt, Cincinnati, Kansas State, Kentucky, Louisville, Maryland, Miami (Fla.), Oregon, Boston College, Duke, Kent State, Miami (Ohio) and Vanderbilt as programs that have offered this talented offensive lineman.

On his drive home from State College, Nittany Sports Now caught up with Cory to get his reaction to Junior Day and receiving an offer from James Franklin’s program.

“I definitely thought getting an offer today was possible because of some of the offers that I have been getting lately from some pretty established programs,” said Cory. “I was very grateful when it happened. I didn’t go crazy when I received the news because there was a huge group of people around me, but I was definitely super pumped. Coach Trautwein and Coach Smith both let me know that I was offered. They said they liked my film and that I need to keep grinding, need to keep working and want to see me this summer.”

The news of the offer was obviously the big news for Cory, but we asked him his overall thoughts on Junior Day and impressions that he left with.

“It wasn’t my first time visiting Penn State, I’ve been there a couple of other times. It’s always sweet being there. They just got a new weightlifting facility, it’s crazy nice. I’ve seen the locker room and some of the other stuff before but it was nice just to be back up there.”

Cory gave no indication on when he plans on making a decision but did admit, with the way his recruitment is going, it’s not going to be easy.

“I think making a final decision is going to be very difficult,” said Cory. “We haven’t really been to that many places and every single place that I been, I definitely have liked — some more than others but I’ve never hated a place. So, it’s going to be very difficult with coaching staff’s moving around to find a place that I can hope will be there for my entire career. Also, I really need to find a place that feels like home. With all of these opportunities, it’s going to be difficult.”
