The 2024 Penn State football recruiting class is shaping up nicely thus far, currently ranking within the top six nationally with 13 hard commits and counting. Recently, the Nittany Lions made a few finalist lists, including the top 10 for four-star New Jersey recruit and major safety target, Kaj Sanders, who hails from Bergen Catholic High School. As a top regional target, Penn State has been interested in Sanders for some time now. The Lions appear to be in good shape, as PSU is one of 10 remaining schools in the race. Penn State is also the current leader in the RPM.
I would like to thank all the coaches that have extended scholarship offers to me. I’m blessed and grateful always. With that being said these are the main 10 schools I will be focusing on. @bccoachvito @RivalsFriedman @RivalsRichie @BrianDohn247 @ShawnB_247 @TodderickHunt pic.twitter.com/2julj8tSXP

Penn State football recruiting class looking to add major four-star New Jersey recruit
The Penn State Nittany Lions are trending for Kaj Sanders right now, recently making his top 10 list and more. According to On3, Sanders is a four-star New Jersey recruit and is ranked among the top 35 safeties in the class and the top 10 recruits in his state. He attends Bergen Catholic High School and has a long list of offers right now, many of which are from the Big Ten conference.
Among Sanders’ top 10 remaining schools are five Big Ten schools, four of which are in the Big Ten East, as well as Notre Dame, South Carolina, Miami, Syracuse, and UNC. Of these ten major programs, Penn State football appears to be in the lead, ranking No. 1 in his recruitment according to the Recruiting Prediction Machine.
So far, Sanders has been to State College twice on recruiting visits — most recently in January of this year — and he has an upcoming official visit with Penn State about a month away, next June. That visit will likely be a crucial deciding factor in his recruitment to Penn State University. He has also scheduled June official visits to North Carolina (ACC) and South Carolina (SEC).
