Four-Star Athlete Neeo Avery Decommits From Penn State Football

Four-star Class of 2023 athlete Neeo Avery is no longer committed to Penn State football, according to a post on his Twitter page. He now says his recruitment is “100% back open.”

“I can’t thank y’all enough, and this decision that my family and I have come to this has been very hard,” Avery wrote online.

Avery is being heavily recruited with offers from the likes of Georgia, Michigan, Notre Dame, and more than a dozen additional schools, according to 247Sports. Among them includes Maryland, which is roughly a 30-minute drive from Avery’s Our Lady Of Good Counsel High School in Olney, Maryland.

Avery is currently ranked as the sixth-best Class of 2023 prospect in Maryland, per 247Sports’ composite rankings. He’s the No. 23 Class of 2023 edge-rusher prospect, too.

Even without Avery, Penn State’s Class of 2023 leads the Big Ten and ranks No. 5 overall, according to 247Sports. The Nittany Lions’ 2023 recruiting class is highlighted by five-star offensive lineman Alex Birchmeier.
