Wide Receiver Ethan Black Commits To Penn State Football As Preferred Walk-On

In-state wide receiver Ethan Black has committed to Penn State’s Class of 2023 as a preferred walk-on, giving the team some much-needed roster depth at the position.

“I am blessed to announce that I have committed to Penn State University where I will be furthering my academic and athletic career,” he wrote on Twitter Wednesday. “I would like to thank my family, friends, coaches, and teammates for supporting me.”

Black, who stands at 5’10” and weighs 160 pounds, made two unofficial visits to the university last summer. He’s the first wide receiver to commit since the program hired Marques Hagans two days ago.

He’s from Davidsville, Pennsylvania, and attends Conemaugh Township Area High School. He appeared in nine games last season, racking up 638 receiving yards and 11 total touchdowns. Black’s speed appears to stand out, as according to his Twitter bio, he runs a 4.25 40-yard dash.

Black is currently unranked on 247Sports. He joins the likes of four-star signee Carmelo Taylor and transfers Malik McClain and Dante Cephas as incoming wideout prospects.
