Long Snapper Tyler Duzansky Commits To Penn State Football As Preferred Walk-On

Penn State football has added yet another specialist to its recruiting class of 2021.

Long snapper Tyler Duzansky announced his commitment to James Franklin’s program as a preferred walk-on Tuesday night.

Duzansky, who hails from Wheaton, Illinois, is ranked as the No. 11 long snapper in the recruiting class and is considered a five-star prospect, according to Rubio Long Snapping. According to his Twitter account, he also plays defensive end and tight end for St. Francis High School.

The nationally ranked long snapper joins a stacked group of special teamers in Penn State’s class of 2021. Top-ranked kicker Sander Sahaydak and kicker/punter Gabe Nwosu both committed to play for the Nittany Lions earlier this year.

As Duzansky’s page on Rubio Long Snapping says, he’s already impressed at multiple training camps around the country.

“Super long and tall athlete that has the potential to be snapping a football for a long time,” Chris Rubio wrote. “He creates an extraordinary amount of speed due to the fact that he is using his whole body like a champ. If I am college coach, I am watching this kid like a hawk. The more size he puts on, the better he will do.”
