Four-Star Linebacker Anthony Speca Commits To Penn State Football

Four-star linebacker Anthony Speca announced his verbal commitment to Penn State football’s Class of 2024 via Twitter on Tuesday. Speca is just the second of his class to commit to the Nittany Lions behind four-star offensive lineman Cooper Cousins.

The 6’2″, 220-pound linebacker chose Penn State over Big Ten programs Michigan and Ohio State, as well as Pitt and Boston College, among others.

The Pittsburgh native locked in as the fifth-ranked athlete in Pennsylvania and the No. 23 overall linebacker, according to 247Sports. Throughout his sophomore year at Central Catholic, Speca recorded 70 tackles and one sack. The following season, Speca exploded for 122 tackles and six sacks during his junior year.

Take a peek at Speca’s sophomore year highlight tape for a closer look.

With just two verbal commitments for Penn State football’s Class of 2023, James Franklin’s recruiting efforts are currently ranked No. 24 nationally. Speca’s commitment comes nearly one year following the Nittany Lions’ first Class of 2023 commitment from Cousins in January 2022.
