Class of 2022
Class in 2023: Redshirt freshman
Penn State attacked the wide receiver position pretty well in the Class of 2022, which was headlined and started with the commitment from Kaden Saunders. Tyler Johnson was one of the later additions at receiver but one the staff hopes will prove to be a hidden gem in the recruiting class after putting in early work in the state of Virginia, a key recruiting state for the program,
Johnson was less heralded in the recruiting rankings but he had the kind of size Penn State’s staff thinks will work well in the offense once he is developed a bit more. The long-term outlook for Johnson is what Penn State is banking on here, so it may take just a little more time before that vision is truly realized.
