Penn State football has received a commitment from a Class of 2025 tight end.

Early Wednesday evening, Penn State added to its class when Matt Henderson, a 6-foot-5, 210-pounder from Virginia’s Powhatan High School, announced his commitment.

Penn State offered Henderson roughly two weeks before the announcement.

He also had offers from schools such as Michigan State, Maryland, Pitt, Syracuse and Virginia Tech. Henderson started picking up Power Five offers last month following a big junior season.

He ended 2023 with 1,113 yards and 14 touchdowns on 74 catches per MaxPreps.

In the middle of that season, Henderson visited Happy Valley for Penn State’s game against Indiana Halloween Saturday.

In Henderson’s announcement posted to social media, he wrote that he wanted to give “my sincere appreciation to all the amazing people who have made me into the person and player I am today.”

“Including my parents, family, friends and coaches, along with a great community behind me,” he wrote. “Without their guidance and efforts, I wouldn’t be able to achieve my dreams doing what I love.

“I am extremely excited to announce my commitment to ….Penn State University.”

Lions247 reported that Henderson was supposed to take an official visit to Michigan State the weekend of June 21-23. But those plans have changed. Per 247, Henderson’s expected to take his Penn State OV the weekend of June 14-16, which lines up with when most of the ‘25 commits will be visiting.

Henderson is the 13th player to commit to Penn State’s ‘25 Class and will likely be the first tight end. Brady O’Hara, a three-star from North Catholic in the Pittsburgh area, is listed as a tight end but is expected to play on the line in college.
