Penn State Extends Offer to Elite 2027 QB Brady Edmunds

One of the top freshmen in the country was in State College this weekend and left with an offer from Penn State.

2027 quarterback Brady Edmunds from Huntington Beach, California, made an unofficial visit over the weekend and participated in Penn State’s Elite Prospects Camp.

Not surprisingly, at the end of his trip, Edmunds added another school to his ever-growing list of offers.

Despite playing just one season of high school football, Edmunds now holds offers from Penn State, Michigan, Texas, Ohio State, Oregon, Florida State, Arizona State, Auburn, Boston College, Louisville, Virginia Tech, Washington and Washington State.

It’s apparent that Edmunds is on a path to become one of the top overall prospects in the entire country and it’s something that he’s ready for.

“I’ve talked to several head coaches and when they’re offering me, right after, they’re like this is just the beginning, you still have to be levelheaded and work hard,” Edmunds told Nittany Sports Now. “To be honest, all these offers are cool, but I just want to get the pads back on and start playing football.”

Edmunds becomes the first quarterback in the Class of 2027 to receive an offer from Penn State. His weekend was jammed pack with activities both on and off the field as it was his first-time visiting Penn State and his first in-depth communication with members of the staff.

“That was my first time communicating with anyone at Penn State. Coach (Danny) O’Brien, the quarterbacks coach, is really close with my quarterbacks coach out in Southern California. I think they’ve even worked together on warm-up quarterback drills and stuff like that. So that was my first time meeting him. But on Saturday, I got some 1-on-1 time with Coach O’Brien for like 3 hours. We were just watching some film and talking football. I met Coach (James) Franklin going into the camp and obviously we talked more after the camp.”

So, what was this kid from Southern California’s first impression of State College?

“It was awesome,” Edmunds said. “Obviously, the area in general is a lot different than Southern California but I really don’t care too much about the area. I’ll go wherever to play football. To be honest, I see myself getting out of California to play football. The campus was pretty, the whole area was pretty. I could definitely see myself there possibly.”

Last season at Huntington Beach High School, Edmunds threw for 2,691 yards and 24 touchdowns. Although his stats are obviously impressive and catching the eye of some of the top programs in all of college football, Edmunds tells NSN what he believes makes him a good quarterback.

“My arm strength,” he said. “I’m a bigger guy, 6’5, 215 pounds, so, I’m probably one of the biggest quarterbacks in my class. But I think the thing that really separates me is how I understand the game of football. I think that I’m one of the smartest quarterbacks in the nation. Put me on a whiteboard, film, anything like that, I think that I can crush it.”

Edmunds’ list of offers will likely increase over the coming week. He’s visiting Notre Dame today, UCLA June 18, LSU June 21 and Alabama June 22.

Getting this national recruit so early was important for Penn State, now the next step is to try and get him to make a return visit on a GameDay.
