Three-Star Defensive Lineman Kaleb Artis Commits To Penn State Football

You thought James Franklin couldn’t get any hotter on the recruiting trail? Well, think again, folks.

Three-star defensive end Kaleb Artis announced via Twitter Sunday night that he’s committing to Penn State. Artis is the fifth recruit to join Franklin’s 2022 class over the last three days, including one of three players to join the Nittany Lions just on Sunday alone.

“I wanna start of by saying thank you to all who offered and showed me any interest and I want to say thank you to the man above, none of this would’ve been possible without GOD by my side as well as my parents, family, friends, and all others who showed much support,” Artis said.

Artis chose Penn State over Auburn and Rutgers, among others. He hails from Fresh Meadows, New York where he attends St. Francis Preparatory School. In 11 varsity games so far in high school, Artis has totaled 54 tackles, six sacks, and a forced fumble, according to his MaxPreps profile.

According to 247Sports’ composite rankings, among players in the 2022 cycle, Artis is the second-best player in New York and the 63rd-best defensive lineman in the nation.

Artis is now the 17th player to join Penn State’s 2022 recruiting class. Among those 17, he’s one of six defensive players, joining Ken Talley, Tyrece Mills, Keon Wylie, Zane Durant, and Tyreese Fearbry.

Prior to Artis’ commitment, Penn State’s 2022 class ranked No. 2 in the Big Ten and No. 4 in the nation. The Nittany Lions have bounced back in a huge way thus far this cycle after ranking No. 6 in the Big Ten and No. 21 nationally during the 2021 cycle. Artis’ commitment only strengthens an already loaded 2022 class for Penn State.
