State College High School Quarterback Finn Furmanek Commits To Penn State Football

Penn State continues to inch closer to “Tight End University” status with yet another tight end commit.

State College’s very own Finn Furmanek announced on Friday that he will be staying home to continue his athletic and academic careers. After playing quarterback for State College High School, Furmanek will join Penn State’s program as a walk-on run-on tight end, as reported by PennLive.

Furmanek joins fellow tight ends Mega Barnwell, Andrew Rappleyea, and Joey Schlaffer in a packed 2023 recruiting class.

The 6’4″, 205-pounder was an elite quarterback at State College High School, where he lit up the scoreboard in multiple areas. With the Little Lions in 2022, Furmanek accumulated 23 touchdowns while throwing for 1,593 yards, rushing for 589 yards, and hauling in 15 catches for 170 yards.

State College High School will now be represented by three players on the Nittany Lions’ roster, as safeties Keaton Ellis and Jashaun Green are both products of the high school as well.
