Penn State is getting a visit from a Class of 2026 quarterback prospect next week.

Brady Hart, a 6-foot-5, 185-pounder from Florida’s Cocoa High School, announced via X (formerly Twitter) Friday that he’ll be visiting Penn State Thursday, March 14.

Hart has several other visits planned.

He’ll also be going to UCF (March 11), Ohio State (March 19), LSU (March 25), Notre Dame (April 3), Miami (April 6), North Carolina (April 9) and Florida State (April 16). Penn State offered Hart in September. He also has offers from schools such as Arkansas, Indiana, Iowa State, Miami, North Carolina, Notre Dame, Ole Miss, Pitt, Purdue, Texas A&M, UCF, USF and Virginia Tech.

Hart became Cocoa’s starter for the first time last season and performed quite well. He threw for 3,759 yards, 41 touchdowns and led his team to a state championship.

This will be Hart’s first visit to Penn State, and he spoke with On3Sports about his recruitment, saying he has some schools that particularly interest him.

“I definitely have a couple of schools that I like, but I’m still really open,” Hart told On3. “I don’t think I’ve been to enough schools and met with enough coaches yet. Getting out to watch spring practices this year is important because I didn’t get recruited as much my freshman year.”

“This is really my first year of being recruited,” he said, “so I definitely need to go check out more of these schools and be in their environments, which will help me narrow down my decision and get to my top five or 10 schools.”

Penn State doesn’t yet have a QB committed to its ‘26 Class. It has three-star Bekkem Kritza (Miami Central) committed from the ‘25 Class, and is in the final four for in-state blue-chipper Matt Zollers from Spring-Ford.
