Penn State has gotten out to a fast start with recruiting for next season.

Following the recent commitment of 4-star quarterback Bekkem Kritza, Penn State now has six early commitments from the Class of 2025, the most in the Big Ten.

Over the last few days, two top juniors updated their recruiting, and both listed the Penn State as one of their top schools.

2025 5-star recruit Zayden Walker (Ellaville, Georgia), the No. 1 ranked junior linebacker, released his Top 6, which included Penn State, Alabama, Georgia, Florida State, South Carolina and Miami, Fla. Considering Walker is from Georgia, you would think it will be difficult to keep him from Kirby Smart and the Bulldogs, but you never know.

The second elite prospect to narrow down his list was Kevyn Humes, a 2025 4-star cornerback from St. Frances Academy in Baltimore, Maryland. Humes is rated by Rivals.com as one of top 100 juniors in the country and one of the top 10 cornerbacks. Humes narrowed his long list of offers down to 5 schools: Penn State, Alabama, Georgia, Notre Dame and Oregon. Humes has made three unofficial visits to Penn State, including one for the Michigan game.
