Penn State Gets PWO Commitment From New Jersey OT

Penn State football has added a preferred walk-on commitment to its 2024 Class.

Logan Bahn, a 6-foot-5, 295-pound offensive tackle from New Jersey’s Ramsey High School, announced his commitment to Penn State Thursday evening via X.

OL coach Phil Trautwein has been the catalyst in changing the perception of Penn State’s offensive line over the past few years, and recruiting has been a part of that. Penn State’s two highest-rated Class of 2023 commits, four-stars J’ven Williams (Wyomissing, Pennsylvania) and Alex Birchmeier (Ashburn, Virginia) are both offensive linemen. In the 2024 Class, six commits are offensive linemen.

Bahn wrote to X that he decided to commit after taking a visit to Penn State Wednesday during the team’s bye week, and has a phone call Thursday with head coach James Franklin himself to announce the news.

“After an amazing visit to #PennState yesterday and a phone call with @coachjfranklin today, I’m excited to announce that I am 💯 committed to @PennStateFball!

In the message, Bahn also shouted out Trautwein and Penn State’s recruiting coordinator for personnel and recruitment, Khalil Ahmad.  Ahmad joined Penn State football’s staff in late January.

He’d been working at Syracuse since  February 2022, spending a lot of time recruiting in New Jersey.

Since Ahmad got to Penn State, three players combined from the ‘24 and ‘25 classes have committed out of New Jersey. In Penn State’s ‘24 Class, four-star safety Vaboue Toure commuted in June. In the ‘25 Class, two of Penn State’s five commits are from New Jersey, those being four-star LB DJ McClary (Jersey City) and three-star safety Omari Gaines (Newark).
