How’s this to kick off the biggest recruiting weekend for the Penn State football team? Becoming the favorite to land a top-linebacker prospect certainly helps. Earlier this week the Nittany Lions were linked to 2025 4-star running back Tiqwai Hayes who makes his decision on Monday. Then, on Friday night Penn State became the favorite to land DJ McClary a top 100 player who received a crystal ball last night. He is a highly talented prospect from New Jersey.

The Penn State football team looks to continue to build on the 2025 recruiting class. Recently, the class took a hit when Jaelyne Matthews decommitted from the Nittany Lions. But landing running back Tiqwi Hayes and adding linebacker DJ McClary would be a massive boost.

DJ McClary is a four-star recruit from Jersy City, New Jersey. He attends Henry Synder High School and he is a top-three prospect in New Jersey according to 247sports. McClary holds offers from Oregon, USC, Ohio State, and several other top schools.

Now the talented prospect has received a crystal ball to Penn State. Last night, Brian Dohn who is the National Recruiting Analyst for 247sports put in a crystal ball for DJ McClary to land at Penn State, with a confidence level of 6. Adding a top 100 recruit in the 2025 class would be massive for James Franklin and his staff.

This should be just the beginning of a massive weekend for the Nittany Lions. With an estimated 80-plus recruits on campus to experience the whiteout, it’s possible that a few recruits make their decision today.
