Class Of 2023 Quarterback Jack Lambert Commits To Penn State Football As Preferred Walk-On

Chad Powers isn’t the only walk-on quarterback recently linked to the Penn State football program.

Class of 2023 quarterback Jack Lambert announced his verbal commitment to the Nittany Lions as a preferred walk-on run-on Friday afternoon in a post to his Twitter account.

“I am beyond blessed to say that I am committing to Penn State as a PWO,” Lambert wrote. “I would like to thank my parents as they have shaped me into the man that I am today.”

“I would like to thank all of the coaches and teammates that have helped me become the best QB I can be on the field,” Lambert said. “#THINKFASTRUNFAST.”

Lambert previously attended camps at Clemson, NC State, and Appalachian State before selecting Penn State.

Lambert, who plays for Topsail High School in North Carolina, has no ratings in any major recruiting databases. However, through his senior season thus far, Lambert has thrown six touchdowns and 455 yards at a 54.9% completion rate.

The 6’3″, 185-pound quarterback will join an already impressive Nittany Lion recruiting class, which currently ranks No. 12 across all NCAA programs, according to 247Sports.

Lambert is the third quarterback to commit to Penn State’s Class of 2023 and the second walk-on signal-caller. New York native AJ Locke announced his commitment as a preferred walk-on in June, while three-star recruit Jaxon Smolik committed in August.
