Penn State QB Commit Ethan Grunkemeyer Named 1 of Elite 11

Penn State Class of 2024 QB commit Ethan Grunkemeyer has been named one of 2023’s Elite 11.

Grunkemeyer is on the list along with Alabama commit Julian Sayin, CJ Carr (Notre Dame), Jadyn Davis (Michigan), Will Hammond (Texas Tech) Hejny Hauss (TCU), Colin Hurley (LSU), Daniel Kaelin (Nebraska), Luke Kromenhoek (Florida State), DJ Lagway (Florida), Air Noland (Ohio State) and Dylan Railoa (Georgia). Grunkemeyer, the 6-foot-2.5, 190-pounder from Olentangy High School in Lewis Center, Ohio, has shot up the recruiting ranks over the past two months.

Penn State offered the three-star April 20 and he announced his commitment exactly a month later.

The day after that announcement, Grunkemeyer performer at Elite 11’s State College showcase and was the only QB from that outing to get an Elite 11 invite.

Day 1 went quite well for Grunkemeyer. So well, in fact, that On3Sports named him the event’s MVP.

He beat out some of the best ‘24 QB’s in the country, including five-stars Georgia Raiola and Davis.

The Elite 11 Finals are a premier high school quarterback showcase.

Last summer, Penn State ‘23 signee Jaxon Smolik played well enough to be named one of the Elite 11 at the end of the showcase.

Smolik had been committed to Tulane, but his performance there boosted his stock and helped him get offered by Penn State. Smolik ended up de-committing from Tulane, committing to Penn State in August and signing in December.

We’ll see what become of Grunkemeyer between now and December’s Early Signing Day. But these last few days have been solid for Penn State’s ‘24 QB  commit. Big things will be expected for “The Grunk” this coming season.
