Penn State’s 2023 recruiting class added a safety on Monday afternoon.

Conrad Hussey, a 3-star safety out of Fort Lauderdale, Fla., verbally committed to Penn State, becoming the 11th player of the cycle to pledge to James Franklin and Co. He had received 18 offers on the recruiting front.

“Many times in our lives, we come upon a crossroad and there is immense pressure to make the right decision for yourself, your leaders and last but not least – your family,” Hussey wrote on Twitter. “I am blessed to be faced with such an opportunity at this time and would like to use this platform to thank my family, my coaches and all the persons who have played a significant role in my development.

“With God’s guidance and the love and support of my family, I have decided to commit to Penn State. I’m coming home to Happy Valley!”

Last season at St. Thomas Aquinas, Hussey was credited with 26 tackles and 4 interceptions. He also returned a blocked field goal for a touchdown. The team finished the 2021 campaign with a 14-1 record.

Hussey is listed a 6-foot, 190 pounds and is considered a Top 50 safety in the cycle. He’s ranked just outside the Top 500 among overall prospects for the 2023 class, as well.

Penn State edged out programs like Florida, Florida State, Indiana, Kentucky, Maryland, Mississippi State, Missouri, Ole Miss, South Carolina and Utah for Hussey’s commitment. He joins a Penn State class that ranks No. 4 in the nation and No. 2 in the B1G.
