Running Back David Kency Jr. Commits To Penn State Football As Preferred Walk-On

Running back David Kency Jr. announced his commitment to Penn State football’s Class of 2023 as a preferred walk-on via his Twitter account Monday night. Kency’s commitment comes just one day before after visiting Happy Valley.

Kency joins a Nittany Lion recruiting class that already boasts two running backs. Four-star London Montgomery and three-star Cameron Wallace both signed in December.

With Archbishop Shaw High School, Kency was his team’s leading rusher. In his senior season, Kency recorded the second-longest run in school history – a 95-yard score.

Penn State’s Class of 2023 remains ranked at No. 15 in the country, according to 247Sports. James Franklin’s group also remains behind Ohio State in the conference rankings.
