Penn State 2024 commit Ethan Grunkemeyer has accepted an invitation to play in the 2024 Under Armour All-America game.
It’s another honor in a long line of accolades Grunkemeyer has racked up this summer. He started the offseason with an impressive showing at the Elite 11 regional camp where he was named by event organizers as one of the top 11 at the event. He continued to impress at the Elite 11 finals in Los Angeles.
The Under Armour All-America game is played annually in January at Camping World Stadium in Orlando. Grunkemeyer will be the first Penn State QB commit quarterback to play in the game since Michael Johnson Jr. in 2019. Penn State’s had a litany of prospects play in the game over the course of the years including Sean Clifford, Kaden Saunders and Kaytron Allen.
Grunkemeyer committed to Penn State in May and has seen his stock rise exponentially after doing so. The 6-foot-2, 190 pound quarterback prospect will join a loaded quarterback room next summer that will feature some serious talent in Drew Allar, Beau Pribula and Jaxon Smolik.
It won’t be easy to see the field in his first year or two with Penn State, but given his ability to impress and continued growth going into his senior season, it would be no surprise if he came to campus as a five-star recruit and started pushing those ahead of him on the depth chart for playing time.
This fall, Grunkemeyer will hit the field for Olentangy High School in Lewis Center, Ohio.
