4-star WR includes Penn State in SEC-heavy Top 5
The SEC dominated the Top 5 list of 4-star wide receiver Karmello English, but Penn State was able to sneak into the mix. The 2023 talent out of Alabama released his list on Monday afternoon.
English, ranked just outside the Top 100 overall recruits in the 2023 cycle, revealed the schools he’s still considering for his commitment. Penn State made the cut with 4 SEC schools occupying the other spots: Auburn, Alabama, Kentucky and Florida.
Per 247Sports, English ranks as the No. 14 wide receiver of his recruiting class. The 5-foot-11, 175-pound pass catcher is listed at No. 102 overall, as well.
Penn State currently owns the nation’s No. 4 recruiting class and sits atop the B1G standings.

English helped Central High School earn a trip to the state championship game this past year. He recorded 1,059 yards and 18 touchdowns on 70 catches, maintaining a 15.1 yards per reception average. The junior also rushed for a pair of touchdowns.
From 247Sports’ recruiting analyst Cooper Petagna:
Displays above average athletic ability at the receiver position. Shows the ability to line up inside out but takes most of his snaps inside as a slot. Appears to have above average short area quickness and change of direction ability. Possesses some slight hip and ankle stiffness that inhibit separation ability but overcompensates with his ability to play big and utilize his frame.
Below are some of English’s high school highlights:
