Jaylan Hornsby has become a familiar name for most Nittany Lions fans. As the college football recruiting season heats up, the 2024 Penn State football recruiting class is missing a crucial piece: a talented wide receiver. However, the Nittany Lions are showing promising signs in their pursuit of Jaylan Hornsby, a highly sought-after four-star recruit. Hornsby recently transferred high schools and has scheduled an official visit to Penn State for the upcoming weekend.

Heading into June, the 2024 Penn State football recruiting class has earned a spot in the top 10 nationally, currently ranked as the 7th-best class in the country. Last weekend, the team secured the commitment of Ethan Grunkemeyer, a promising quarterback prospect. Now, the Lions are eagerly looking to add another major target to their roster — reports have confirmed that Jaylan Hornsby, a four-star wide receiver from New Jersey, is high on their list.

According to the ON3 rankings, Hornsby is considered a four-star prospect, ranking as the 49th best wide receiver in his class and the 6th best recruit in New Jersey. Currently, the Recruiting Prediction Machine gives Penn State the highest odds (82.1%) of securing his commitment, which would further enhance their already impressive 2024 class.

Another factor that may work in Penn State’s favor is Hornsby’s recent transfer to Winslow Township High School, where he will be coached by two former Nittany Lions, Bill Belton and Christian Hackenberg.

The upcoming weekend holds great importance for Penn State football recruiting, as several top-ranked recruits are expected to visit the campus.

The Nittany Lions are in a favorable position to secure commitments from a number of four-star prospects. To compete with powerhouses like Michigan and Ohio State in the Big Ten East, it is crucial for Penn State to successfully recruit players like Hornsby and others — all signs are starting to point towards another hot recruiting summer for James Franklin and his staff.
