Penn State named finalist for 2024 WR, 4-star recruit out of New Jersey
Penn State is working on another top-10 recruiting class under head coach James Franklin, and the Nittany Lions are a finalist for another elite player in the 2024 recruiting class.
On Friday, 4-star wide receiver Jaylan Hornsby out of New Jersey announced a pair of finalists for his commitment. Penn State made the cut alongside Texas A&M out of the SEC.
Hornsby was on campus for an official visit with the Nittany Lions to begin June, and he is expected to be at Texas A&M this weekend for an official visit with the Aggies. That could mean a commitment is forthcoming once this weekend wraps up.
