Most teams are focused on the 2020 recruiting class right now, but it’s never too early to look ahead to future prospects. On Wednesday, Penn State made an addition to its 2021 class.

Three-star Florida tight end Nick Elksnis gave his verbal commitment to the Nittany Lions, becoming the second player of the 2021 cycle to pledge to PSU. He joins four-star wide receiver Dont’e Thornton.

Eklsnis made his announcement via Twitter with a brief message.

“After much thought and prayer, I am humbled to say I have committed to Penn State University to continue my athletic and academic career,” Elksnis wrote.

Per 247Sports, Elksnis ranks as the No. 16 tight end of his class. A native of Jacksonville, Florida, he’s also the No. 52 player from his home state and ranks inside the top 450 nationally. There are no composite rankings on him yet.

Several schools showed interest in the 6-foot-5, 220-pound tight end, especially those from his home state. He received offers from Florida, Florida State, Miami (FL) and FIU. Outside of Florida, Elksnis held offers from Georgia Tech, Michigan, Mississippi State and South Carolina, among others.

Penn State’s 2021 class ranks sixth in the B1G and 19th nationally. Obviously that will change drastically over the next 18 months.
