Quarterback AJ Locke Commits To Penn State As Preferred Walk-On

There’s another quarterback coming to Happy Valley.

AJ Locke announced his intentions to join James Franklin’s football program via Twitter on Thursday.

Locke is going into his senior year with Holy Trinity High School in Hicksville, New York. While he had not received formal offers from any NCAA schools, Locke had visited Penn State, as well as South Carolina, Jackson State, and others.

The Long Island native is the second quarterback to join the Nittany Lions’ 2023 recruiting class after they already landed two quarterbacks from the Class of 2022. He joins an already impressive Class of 2023, according to 247Sports, which has Penn State ranked third among next year’s recruiting classes.
