Julian Fleming is gearing up to play his first ever college football game in his home state of Pennsylvania.

Fleming, the junior WR out of Catawissa, PA, has seen a substantial increase in his role for the Buckeyes in 2022. According to Fleming, “mostly everyone” from his hometown is a Penn State fan.

Fleming claims he’s “trying to just treat this game like any other game”, however.

Fleming is 3rd on the Buckeyes in receiving yards with 327 in just 5 games. Fleming also has 6 TDs on the season, compared to only 1 in the 2021 season.

Fleming’s Buckeyes are seeking to remain perfect with a win over B1G foe Penn State in Week 9. One can assume a win would be that much sweeter for Fleming, back in his home state.
