Defensive End Joey Palko Commits To Penn State As Preferred Walk-On

Penn State picked up a preferred walk run-on commitment Wednesday night from Class of 2023 defensive end Joey Palko.

Palko, who was originally committed to Bucknell, visited Penn State and received an offer earlier this week. According to Blue White Illustrated’s Sean Fitz, Palko attended the Maryland game this past Saturday.

“After a long time of thoughts and prayers, I am proud to announce that I am committed to play Football at Penn State! Thank you to all the coaches for this opportunity,” Palko wrote.

Palko, a Pennsylvania native, currently attends Pottsville Area High School. There, he plays both defensive end and tight end.

He now joins James Franklin’s 2023 recruiting class that ranks No. 14 in the country. The class is headlined by four-star offensive linemen Alex Birchmeier and J’ven Williams.
