When a player starts being hailed as a top 100 player as a sophomore in high school, you know he will have to entertain a ton of college offers during his recruiting process. For Penn State to secure a commitment from one of them two years out is an encouraging start to a recruiting cycle.
The first player to commit to Penn State's Class of 2025 was offensive tackle Jaelyne Matthews from New Jersey. Matthews continued a recent trend for Penn State by having the first commitment in the recruiting class be an offensive lineman, and the fact he comes out of a key recruiting state like New Jersey is an added bonus.
