Four-Star Offensive Lineman Aaryn Parks Commits To Penn State

Penn State football’s recruiting class of 2020 welcomed yet another offensive lineman when four-star tackle Aaryn Parks made his commitment on Monday evening.

Parks is a big addition to Penn State’s 2020 recruiting class. He’s a blue-chip prospect from Fort Washington, Maryland who’s the eighth-best player from the state in this cycle. The tackle is also one of the 20 best players at his position in the country, and he’s the fifth offensive lineman in the Nittany Lions’ class of 2020.

James Franklin has secured commitments from fellow Grant Toutant, RJ Adams, Golden Achumba, and Nicholas Dawkins this cycle. Parks’ commitment made Penn State’s current recruiting class the best in the Big Ten and pushed its national ranking up to No. 6.

Some of the other headliners of Franklin’s 10-man recruiting class are four-star linebackers Curtis Jacobs and Derek Wingo along with defensive tackle Cole Brevard, who committed to Penn State over Blue-White weekend.

Parks was originally set to announce his commitment on Thursday, but he clearly didn’t want to wait. That just might explain why he beat James Franklin to his signature “#WeAre…Bettertweet recruiting Bat-Symbol, which came out nearly 20 minutes after Parks made his pledge.

Regardless, you can watch the newest Nittany Lion’s highlights here.
