Penn State ‘24 Commit Takes Big Leap in Recruiting Rankings

One of Penn State football’s top Class of 2024 commits took a significant leap in one outlet’s recruiting rankings.

Luke Reynolds— who On3Sports lists as a four-star but 247Sports has as a five-starmoved up in On3’s updated rankings from No. 83 to No. 38.

Reynolds is a 6-foot-4.5, 220-pound TE from Connecticut’s Cheshire Academy. He committed to Penn State in late March, and since then, his recruitment has skyrocketed. On3 now has him as the No. 3 tight end in the country from his class and the No. 1 player from Connecticut. 247 has him as the top ‘24 tight end in America, as well as the top overall player in the state.

On3’s “Scouts Take” said that Reynolds has “put together quite a senior season.”

“He is a complete player at the position from a skillset perspective,” the take said, “and has shown some flashes of truly elite YAC ability. He is what the modern hybrid offensive player looks like at the next level. His ability to play as an H-back, in-line Y, slot receiver and true wideout makes him a complete mismatch no matter where he lines up between the white lines.”

When Reynolds committed, he was the 913th-ranked player in the country.

He committed to Penn State in late March, a week after being offered. He also has offers from schools such as Boston College, Cincinnati, Duke, Kentucky, Louisville, Pitt, Stanford, Syracuse, Temple, Vanderbilt, Virginia and Wake Forest.

Signing Day is exactly a month away, so Reynolds isn’t officially a Penn State player yet. But there’s no indication anywhere that he’ll change his mind. He’s a player fans should be excited about.
