The Penn State football recruiting efforts received a significant boost with the addition of their 14th committed player for the 2024 class. Ethan Grunkemeyer, a talented three-star quarterback, officially joined the Nittany Lions. With the upcoming official visit season during the summer, Penn State’s recruiting activities are expected to intensify.

Notably, a highly regarded three-star offensive tackle from Florida recently announced Penn State as one of his top five potential destinations. This inclusion in his finalists further showcases the program’s attractiveness to prospective recruits.

The Penn State football recruiting class has already secured commitments from a number of offensive linemen, and they are now in contention for another promising prospect. Deryc Plazz, hailing from Andrew Jackson High School in Florida, recently narrowed down his list of potential schools to five (out of 37 D1 offers), and Penn State made the cut.

Deryc Plazz, according to the ON3 industry rankings, is considered a three-star offensive tackle recruit and falls within the top 1,000 recruits for the 2024 class nationwide. He holds the No. 73 ranking for offensive tackles in his class and is ranked as the No. 132 overall recruit in the state of Florida.

Plazz’s top five teams, as stated in his announcement, include Penn State football, Florida State, Miami, NC State, and Duke. While NC State is currently favored to secure his commitment based on the RPM rankings, Penn State is among his top four teams with a strong chance of landing him.

While Plazz may not be the most high-profile recruit in the class, his imposing physical stature of 6-foot-6 and 265 pounds, combined with his notable talent, would make for a valuable addition to the Lions’ recruiting class. As Penn State strives to compete with powerhouses like Michigan and Ohio State on the recruiting trail, adding Plazz’s skills and potential to their roster would contribute to their ongoing efforts to compile top-tier talent.
