Yesterday, the Nittany Lions added an eighth player to their 2024 recruiting class, which currently ranks among the top 10 classes in the nation. This Friday, Penn State football will have another massive opportunity with its 2024 recruiting class, as four-star Ohio State target Aaron Scott will be in State College ahead of the Blue-White game on Saturday.

This weekend is a massive date on the annual Penn State football calendar: the Blue-White spring game. Penn State fans from all over the state and the country will flock back home to Happy Valley to get their first glimpse at this year’s Nittany Lions, including some rising stars like Drew Allar, Tony Rojas, and more.

Alongside these die-hard Penn State fans will be some of the nation’s top recruits, including some players that are currently expected to commit to other Big Ten powers like Michigan and Ohio State. One of these players is Aaron Scott — a four-star Ohio State target — who will make the trip a day early for a visit on Friday.

Seeing as Scott is the No. 1 player in Ohio for the 2024 recruiting class, his recruitment is precious to the Buckeyes, and James Franklin will have to go all-out to sway him from Columbus.

Penn State football must go all-out for No. 1 player in Ohio

Aaron Scott is a 6-foot-0, 165-pound 2024 defensive back — he is rated as a four-star recruit by all four major recruiting outlets and is ranked as the No. 1 player in Ohio by 247 Sports and On3. Right now, Scott is favored to commit to Ryan Day’s Ohio State Buckeyes, though with a new visit to Penn State this weekend, James Franklin will have a chance to change that.

Scott is ranked as the No. 1 player in Ohio, the No. 4 cornerback in the cycle, and the No. 36 player in the country according to the 247 Sports rankings — every insider prediction is for Ohio State, so Penn State football must throw everything it has at him during his trip to Happy Valley this weekend.
