Penn State in top six for 2024 Pennsylvania WR
With spring practices and the NFL draft season starting to heat up, football is starting to come back into focus.
While recruiting is pretty much an all-year thing at this point, this is normally a time when many of the upcoming high school seniors start trimming their list of potential schools. Prospects across the country start putting their focus on the best fits for them and start figuring out where they want to play their college career.
On March 23, wide receiver Rico Scott announced that Penn State is included in his top six schools. Scott is hovering the line between a four-star and three-star prospect depending on which recruiting service is used. On3’s industry rank has him as a three-star while 247Sports has him listed as a four-star.
Regardless, it would be important for Penn State to get a commitment from Scott. He’s a Pennsylvania prospect who plays his high school football at Bishop McDevitt in Harrisburg. James Franklin has talked about how crucial it is to dominate the state on the recruiting trail.
The other schools in his top six include Alabama, Georgia, Texas A&M, Tennessee, and Colorado.

While there are some big-name programs on the list, On3’s Recruiting Prediction Machine thinks Scott will be playing in State College on Saturdays.
It currently gives Penn State a 59.4% chance of landing the 6’0″ 190-pound prospect. Texas A&M has the second-best odds at 22.7%.
He told Hayes Fawcett of On3, “The coaches make it feel like home every time I visit. I have a great relationship with Coach Franklin and it means something to me to be able to represent where you are from. I love the things coach Haggans preaches.”
We’ll see if Scott stays home and Penn State continues to dominate the state.
