In the tweet, he “thanked his family for their love and support throughout my high school career,” his coaches and teammates for “pushing me to become a better player and the best version of myself,” and his trainers and lifting coaches for helped him “stay healthy on the field.”
”After a talk with my family,” the tweet read, “I have decided that I will be continuing my athletic career at Penn State University.”
Furmanek is a 6-foot-4, 205 pounder who threw for 1,593 yards this past season. He also rushed for 589 and had 170 yards on 15 catches. He totaled 23 touchdowns. In short, he’s capable of playing multiple positions. Furmanek is the second QB to commit to Penn State within the past 10 days. The school got a commitment from Karson Kiesewetter, which was announced last Wednesday. Kiesewetter played at Bishop Guilfoyle High School in Altoona, throwing for 2,018 yards and 18 touchdowns this past season.
Penn State’s future at the quarterback position looks to be set. Drew Allar, a former five-star from Medina, Ohio, is expected to be Penn State’s QB1. this season, succeeding four-year starter Sean Clifford. Penn State also has Allar’s classmate and former Pennsylvania Player of the Year Beau Pribula (York) in the fold, and three-star Jaxon Smolik (Des Moines, Iowa) from the 2023 Class.
Penn State’s 2022 class also got a walk-on commitment from State College’s Trace Brown last February.
