Penn State All 105: Dominic Rulli

All 105 is a Nittany Sports Now series profiling each Penn State football player. Here’s a profile of walk-on offensive lineman Dominic Rulli.

Height: 6-foot-3

Weight: 288 pounds

Hometown: Burlington, Kentucky

Before Penn State: Rulli had been committed to West Virginia since Christmas Eve. Then, a month and a day after his initial commitment, he heard from PSU head coach James Franklin and offensive line coach Phil Trautwein, and that got the ball rolling. He liked what West Virginia offered, but having grown up a PSU fan and, as grade school kid, watching the program recover from scandal to return to national powerhouse status, he knew what his heart was telling him.

“I’ve always wanted Penn State,” Rulli told Nittany Sports Now not long after his commitment. “West Virginia was great. There wasn’t any way they treated me bad. It was a great time. I loved the coaches. Coach Ryan Nahlen, he did a great job. I just felt that at Penn State, I could see myself in the future player there. I felt I fit the system. I could see this bond being built between myself and coach Trautwein, and I just liked my scenario a little bit better at Penn State. That made my decision a little bit easier.

“It was a little close to signing day, which was a little stressful. But I think— I know I made the right choice.”

2022: Rulli redshirted but made his college debut in Penn State’s White Out win over Minnesota Oct. 23.

A quote by Rulli: “All I’ve known is how to work, and I’m excited for what’s to come at Penn State,” he said. “And I’m ready to work.” — Rulli to NSN
