On3 recently updated its top 300 players in the 2025 recruiting class. Among the top 10 committed players in the class is Penn State football commit Jaelyne Matthews, who committed to James Franklin’s squad back in January of this year. Of the top 10 committed players thus far, Matthews ranks No. 7.

Penn State football commit ranks among top 10 committed players in the 2025 class

Jaelyne Matthews, a 2025 Penn State football commit, is one of the biggest recruiting wins that the Nittany Lions have seen over the past few months. Currently, the 2024 class is in the spotlight, ranking just outside the top 5 nationally with 13 hard commits. However, the Nittany Lions are also actively working on the 2025 class.

The On3 300 was recently updated for the 2025 class, and Jaelyne Matthews, a Penn State football commit, emerged as one of the top 10 committed recruits in the country, securing the No. 7 spot. Despite having committed a few months ago, Matthews continues to receive new offers, including one from Jim Harbaugh and his Michigan Wolverines.

With signing day for the 2025 class still far away, Penn State needs to prioritize maintaining constant communication with Matthews to prevent losing him to a rival.

Not only does Jaelyne Matthews rank among the top 300 recruits in his class, but he also sits just outside the top 75 nationally in the latest On3 rankings. According to the Industry Rankings, Matthews is positioned as the No. 62 recruit in the nation, the No. 7 offensive tackle in his class, and the No. 1 prospect in the state of New Jersey. Hailing from Toms River High School, he will be a key member of the 2025 Penn State football recruiting class, which currently holds a top-3 ranking in the nation.
