Penn State Football: 4-Star DE Jaylen Harvey Moves Up Official Visit to This Weekend

Jaylen Harvey, a four-star Class of 2024 defensive end from Maryland’s Quince Orchard High School, will take his official visit to Penn State football  this weekend, June 2-4, he tweeted Wednesday night.

Harvey was originally scheduled to take his Penn State OV June 9-11, but moved that up.

The 6-foot-2, 235-pounder is predicted to commit to Penn State according to 247Sports’ “Crystal Ball” projections.

National Recruiting Analyst Brian Dohn and Tyler Calvaruso of Lions247 each placed predictions for Harvey to pick Penn State in late October.

Penn State offered Harvey last April ahead of his junior season. He also has offers from schools such as Boston College, Florida, Florida State, Georgia Tech, Indiana, Louisville, Kentucky, Maryland, Michigan, Notre Dame, Oklahoma, Ole Miss, Ohio State, South Carolina, Syracuse, Tennessee, USC, Vanderbilt, Washington and West Virginia.

In December, Harvey announced that Penn State was in his top 11, along with Louisville, Maryland, Michigan, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Oklahoma, Pitt, South Carolina, USC and Tennessee. Harvey also has official visits scheduled to Florida (June 9), USC (June 17), Maryland (June 23) and Ohio State (June 25).

If Harvey ends up coming to Penn State, he wouldn’t be the first blue-chip defensive end from Quince Orchard to do so. Chop Robinson, a former five-star, transferred to Penn State from Maryland after his freshman season in 2021 and became one of Penn State’s best players last season. If all goes well for Chop in 2023, he could well be a first round draft pick in 2024. Harvey’s helped Quince Orchard to two state championships.

Harvey wouldn’t be the first Quince Orchard standout to commit to Penn State football but he would be the first defensive lineman to do so form the 2024 class. Penn State currently has 14 players committed to a Class that ranks No. 7 according to 247.
