STATE COLLEGE, PA — This weekend will be massive for Penn State’s recruiting, and it could even see a key commitment for James Franklin’s Nittany Lions. Jaylen Harvey, a major 2024 Penn State football target, will be in town visiting the program for the seventh time in his recruitment, and with spring and summer recruiting in full swing now, expect the Nittany Lions to be making a massive push to wrap up his recruitment this weekend.

Top 2024 Penn State football target to visit State College this weekend

Jaylen Harvey is undoubtedly a top 2024 Penn State football target as he has regional ties and is a highly-touted prospect. Harvey is a 6-foot-2, 235-pound defensive end prospect, and according to all four major recruiting outlets, he is a four-star 2024 Penn State football target. Harvey is an ESPN 300 recruit, ranking No. 218 in the nation; he also ranks as the No. 18 EDGE, and the No. 7 player in the state of Maryland for the 2024 recruiting class.

So far, every recruiting insider expects Harvey to sign with Penn State all said and done — 100% of 247’s crystal balls are for the Nittany Lions, and the On3 Recruiting Prediction Machine gives Penn State football a 92.7% chance of locking the 2024 four-star EDGE player down.

Harvey likes Penn State, now it’s up to the staff to land a commitment

This weekend’s visit will be crucial for the Nittany Lions — not only is it the seventh time that this major 2024 Penn State football target will be in State College, but it will also be his first time spending time with Deion Barnes since he was promoted to defensive line coach recently. From what we know, Harvey has loved his time with Penn State thus far, and spirits are high as far has his recruitment to Happy Valley goes.

“I like Penn State a lot,” he told On3 in January. “My interest is very high in them. My relationship with the coaches, how they make me feel like a top recruit and the way they develop edge rushers have them up there. The way I feel there and how they coach guys like me up makes Penn State a program I would love to be a part of.”
