2019 Small Forward Patrick Kelly Commits To Penn State

Patrick Kelly is climbing. The 6’7″ small forward from the Virginia Episcopal School in Lynchburg, Virginia is Pat Chambers’ first commit in the 2019 cycle. Kelly made it official on Twitter Thursday afternoon.

Kelly in unrated by the major recruiting services, but was offered on August 30, 2017 according to 247 Sports. Kelly had taken visits to NC State and Richmond, and had been visited by Ohio State coaches before making his pledge to the Nittany Lions.

The high school junior was in town over the weekend to check out Happy Valley on an unofficial visit, but that was enough to make an impact.

Before Kelly enrolls, the Nittany Lions will potentially have four new faces on campus next season in Miles Dread, Rasir Bolton, Tolu Jacobs Yaffa, and Daniil Kasatkin. Only Dread and Bolton have signed their official letters of intent, but their recruiting class – which currently comes in at No. 9 in the Big Ten at this point – will likely move up as the Tolu Jacobs Yaffa and Daniil Kasatkin make their commitments official.

Welcome to Happy Valley, Patrick!
