Penn State Football Commit Liam Clifford Shines On National Stage

While Sean Clifford has already made his mark in primetime, his brother was the one making headlines this weekend.

Three-star Penn State football commit Liam Clifford did just that during St. Xavier High School’s season opener on Saturday. The Cincinnati native hauled in nine passes for 125 yards in a tough 30-24 overtime loss to Brownsburg.

The game was one of seven televised contests this weekend in ESPN’s GEICO High School Kickoff series. Clifford didn’t waste any time impressing this national audience when he hauled in the first play of the game for a 36-yard gain. Had he not stumbled out of bounds trying to deke a defender, it likely would’ve been good for six.

Clifford showcased smooth route-running and quick feet throughout the entire game. The way he moves with the ball is very reminiscent of former Penn State quarterback Tommy Stevens or even New Orleans Saints’ utility man Taysom Hill.

Although he’s played wide receiver throughout high school, he’s listed as an “athlete” on his recruiting page. It’s possible Penn State could use him in a variety of offensive or even defensive roles, but he’s looked very strong at wide receiver.

Clifford is one of two possible wideouts in Penn State’s 2021 recruiting class. Lonnie White Jr. is also listed as an athlete, as he played both wide receiver and quarterback at Malvern Prep.
