Penn State’s bounce back season is benefiting the Lions on and off the field. Depending on the results of the pending Michigan-Ohio State game, the Lions have a chance to play for a B1G Championship.

But before the Lions took the field vs. Michigan State, they already got a victory.

Penn State got a commitment from the No. 1 2018 tight end Zack Kuntz, who was in Happy Valley on an unofficial visit on Saturday:

Kuntz is the No.¬†3 Pennsylvania recruit and the No. 50 player overall in the 2018 class. The 6-7, 218-pound Camp Hill tight end is the second top-50 recruit¬†to join Penn State’s 2018 class.

His commitment gave the Lions their fifth 2018 commitment, all of whom are at least four stars or better. Penn State currently has the No. 4 class in the 247sports class rankings.

Even if the Lions don’t get to a B1G Championship, they’re are setting themselves up to be a force for years to come.
