Four-Star Wide Receiver Kaden Saunders Commits To Penn State Football

Penn State football added the first player to its 2022 recruiting class Saturday morning.

Four-star wide receiver Kaden Saunders committed to the Nittany Lions over Michigan, Notre Dame, and Indiana, among others. He announced his decision Saturday with a flashy graphic and letter on Twitter.

Saunders wrote a short note thanking his parents, teachers, friends, and coaches for helping him get to Happy Valley.

He is ranked the No. 6 recruit in Ohio and the No. 21 wide receiver prospect in the country. Additionally, Sanders checks as the No. 170 overall prospect in the Class of 2022.

The Westerville, Ohio native stands at 5′ 10″ and remains the sole prospect in Penn State’s Class of 2022. In high school, Saunders played both football and baseball.

He’s the first major receiving prospect to join the Nittany Lions under new wide receivers coach Taylor Stubblefield. Stubblefield, who joined Penn State this winter, formerly coached at Miami and was a star receiver at Purdue back in the day.

Earlier this month, the Nittany Lions recruited linebacker Jamari Buddin to its Class of 2021.

Although he won’t be on campus for a long while, you can catch a glimpse of what Saunders will bring to Happy Valley through his highlight reel.
