Penn State is a finalist for the No. 1 Class of 2025 prospect in the country

This prospect also happens to be a quarterback.

Bryce Underwood Jr., a 6-foot-3, 205-pounder from Ohio’s Belleville High School, has PSU in his top seven, Hayes Fawcett of On3Sports tweeted Monday evening.

The other schools are Alabama, Colorado, Florida State, LSU, Oregon and Michigan. Penn State offered Underwood in late January. In addition to his top seven, Underwood has offers from schools such as Arkansas, Auburn, Cincinnati, Florida, Florida State, Georgia, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Louisville, Maryland, Miami, Michigan State, Minnesota, Missouri, Norte Dame, Ohio State, Ole Miss, Oregon, Pitt, Rutgers, Tennessee, Texas, Texas A&M, Washington and Wisconsin.

Underwood last visited Penn State Sept. 23 for the team’s White Out game and win over Iowa. The week before, he visited Coach Prime and Colorado for its matchup with Colorado State, which ended up going into Double OT and ending in a Buffs win.

Before Underwood visited Penn State, his father, Jaquan, told 247Sports that GA and assistant QB coach Danny O’Brien has been a big part of Penn State’s recruitment of his son.

“He actually kept the fire lit for Penn State,” Jaquan Underwood said. “Definitely kept in contact with me and my family from the start of our recruiting process. We wanted to get back to Penn State when the time is right.”

Underwood has put up video-game numbers over his high school career.

Last season, he threw for 2,762 yards and 37 touchdowns, also running for 632 yards. As a freshman in 2021, he threw for 2,888 yards and 39 touchdowns.

Two of Underwood’s top seven will meet this Saturday when Michigan takes on PSU.

Kickoff is scheduled for noon on Fox in Beaver Stadium.
