Nation’s Top Tight End In 2018 Class Zack Kuntz Commits To Penn State

James Franklin’s Nittany Lions landed four-star tight end Zack Kuntz out of Camp Hill, Pennsylvania from the 2018 class. Kuntz, the No. 1 tight end prospect in the nation according to 247 Sports, committed to Penn State over other offers from Alabama, Notre Dame and Ohio State.

Kuntz had 14 other offers, but the 6’7 commit joins 2018 tight end commit Pat Freiermuth, a four-star prospect out of Massachusetts, with the Nittany Lions. The Nittany Lions currently have six other tight ends on the roster, including four currently in their freshman year.

Older brothers Christian and Brandon both played for Penn State, with the former playing as a wide receiver with the team until 2012 and the latter never getting his chance with the Nittany Lions before transferring to West Chester.

Penn State’s 2018 recruiting class, currently with five, is ranked No. 4 in the nation according to 247 with the commitment of Kuntz.
