Five-Star Specialist Alex Bacchetta Commits To Penn State Football
It’s summertime in Happy Valley, but recruiting is a year-round effort for James Franklin and Penn State football.
Five-star punter/kicker Alex Bacchetta announced Tuesday evening that he’s joining the Nittany Lions’ 2022 class.
“I would like to thank Coach Franklin, Coach Lorig, and Coach Raisbeck for their time and commitment in recruiting me from day one,” Bacchetta said on Twitter.
The specialist picked Penn State over Arkansas and Virginia, according to 247Sports. He also has an official visit with the Nittany Lions scheduled for June 21.
Kohl’s Kicking has Bacchetta slated as the No. 7 kicker and No. 1 punter in the nation, easily boasting a five-star rating.
“His frame and leg speed separates him from the rest of his peers. The ball jumps off his foot,” Kohl’s said. “He had an impressive showing in both kicking and punting. Bacchetta’s punting should only get better as he continues to master his drop and rhythm.”
The Atlanta native will join other Nittany Lions like Kaden Saunders, Drew Shelton, and Mekhi Flowers in Penn State’s 2022 class. He’s the only specialist in the class so far.
