Kaden Saunders has gone from one of the most heavily-recruited players in the 2022 class to acting like a recruiter himself. At least that’s the goal the 4-star wide receiver and Penn State commit has set for himsel.

Saunders, currently the highest-ranked player in the Nittany Lions’ 2022 cycle, released a statement on Twitter saying he wants to become more involved in the recruiting process. His goal is to help Penn State build something special over the next few seasons.

“Locked in!!! As one of the leaders of this class I want to help recruit more guys to keep building something special,” Saunders wrote on Twitter on Thursday.

Saunders, an Ohio native, ranks as one of the Top 20 receivers of his class and is the No. 116 overall prospect for the 2022 cycle. He committed to the program in July 2020, and is part of Penn State’s 10-person class that ranks No. 6 nationally and No. 2 in the B1G.

But the summer months are when recruiting season really picks up, especially with the NCAA dead period ending on June 1. For Penn State to maintain its status as one of the top challengers to Ohio State in the B1G, James Franklin needs to sign another highly-ranked recruiting class.

Saunders is committed to making that happen. We’ll see how much his help pays off in December when the Early Signing Period rolls around.
