Before Penn State: Wylie was a three-year letterman at Imhotep Charter Institute. During his high school career, Wylie was a three-year team captain and two-time team MVP. He was also selected to participate in the 2022 All-American Bowl and was a three-time all-state selection (two times a 4A selection, once a 5A selection)
2022: Wylie appeared in three games for Penn State. Out of those three games his most notable appearance was in the Rose Bowl vs. No. 8 Utah. Wylie recorded a total of one solo tackle and one assisted, while also credited with half of a sack.
Wylie was rewarded for his performance by being named Penn State’s Developmental Squad Defensive Player of the Year along with Jake Wilson.
Where he stands: Wylie is part of a loaded linebacker room that he cracked as a freshmen last year. He will have to fight for playing time as a redshirt freshmen, but given his past performances it wouldn’t be a shock to see him get on the field more often if he can stay healthy.
A quote by Wylie: “When I went up there, I was the only linebacker there that they were recruiting. They should me how they could move me around with down and distances. They explained it thoroughly of how they can use me since I was the only one there.” — Wylie to 247Sports
A quote about Wylie: “He’s a football player. He’s a mature kid for his age. Very high football IQ. He’s a dog. He becomes a different animal when he’s on the field. He’s aggressive, he’s smart and he has a knack for the ball.” — Wylie’s high school coach, Cyril Woodland, to 247.
