Four-Star Tight End Jerry Cross Commits To Penn State
Penn State football added the second player to its recruiting class of 2022 with Jerry Cross’ commitment Tuesday night.
The four-star tight end from Milwaukee, Wisconsin announced his decision to join James Franklin’s program via Twitter.
Cross is currently ranked as the sixth-best player from his home state and the sixth-best tight end in the class by 247Sports. He’s racked up eight offers from programs around the nation so far, as he committed to the Nittany Lions over the likes of Wisconsin, Michigan, and Iowa.
While he’s listed as a tight end, the 6’6″ pass-catcher played wide receiver during the 2019 season for Milwaukee King High School. The big man made several big plays as a wide out and helped lead his squad to a 9-1 finish.
The Nittany Lions have yet to add a tight end to their recruiting class of 2021, but they clearly have plenty of depth at the position, and Cross will only add to that when he arrives in 2022. Pat Freiermuth is expected to head to the draft after a highly anticipated junior campaign, but former four-star recruits Zach Kuntz, Brenton Strange, and even Theo Johnson will likely step up for the star in the coming seasons.
Along with even more depth at tight end, Cross also becomes the first Wisconsin native to commit to the Nittany Lions since Robert Windsor in 2015.
