Penn State Football added to its 2024 recruiting class on Saturday afternoon.
Penn State Football has a new 2024 commit in 3-star tight end Luke Reynolds from Chesire Academy in Connecticut.
The 6-foot-4 tight end picked up an offer from Penn State last week and did not waste much time jumping on the opportunity. Reynolds looks to be as much of a standout in the classroom as on the field. His offers include the likes of Dartmouth, Duke, Penn, Stanford and Vanderbilt. Cincinnati, Kentucky, Louisville and Virginia were also in the mix.
Reynolds is currently rated as the No. 45 tight end in the nation by 247 Sports. That is a ranking that certainly feels like it will change in the coming months.
After taking multiple tight ends in the 2023 cycle, the Nittany Lions had the option to be more selective with who they took in the 2024 class. Landing on Reynolds nine months before the early signing day definitely says a lot about what the staff thinks of Reynolds.
Penn State Football has built a pipeline of sorts when it comes to tight ends from the New England region. It started back in the 2016 class with Danny Dalton; while his Penn State career didn’t go as planned, it opened the door for others.
Those others include Pat Freiermuth, one of the best tight ends in school history and 2023 signee Andrew Rappleyea, who many think could be just as good as Freiermuth.
Reynolds is the fifth commit in the 2024 class for Penn State. The class currently ranks 22nd in the nation, but that should improve once Reynolds receives a composite ranking.
