Punter John Brosnahan Plans To Walk On To Penn State

There wasn’t a siren, but Class of 2018 punter John Brosnahan, without an offer from the Nittany Lions, committed to Penn State.

The walk on was interested in three schools — Penn State, North Carolina State, and North Carolina Central — but only received an offer from the FCS school on that list.

Brosnahan plays for Cox Mill High School in Concord, NC. According to his Hudl page, he averaged 44.4 yards per punt on 65 punts during his junior season.  Kohl’s Kicking Camps rate him as the 75th best punter in the Class of 2018.

The Chris Sailer Kicking Camp reviewed him as “a great athlete with an elite leg. Punts with outstanding consistency. His technique and footwork are excellent. Does well under pressure.”

After this season, the only other true punter on the roster is current sophomore Blake Gillikin. The Nittany Lions do not have another punter in the Class of 2018.
