Penn State Football: Nittany Lion Land Top Tight End Mike Gesicki
Four-star Tight End Mike Gesicki, ranked as the best at the position in the nation, has committed to Penn State according to multiple recruiting outlets. Gesicki had stated that after attending the Penn State-Michigan game on an official visit last weekend he had narrowed his choices down to Penn State and Ohio State.
Gesicki, who is 6’5” and 236 pounds, hails from Manahawkin, New Jersey and attends Southern Regional High School. He was recruited primarily by Ron Vanderlinden as well as John Strollo. According to 247sports.com, Gesicki was hosted by Christian Hackenberg and Adam Breneman on his visit last weekend.
Last season, Gesicki had 50 catches for 954 yards and 10 touchdowns in 12 games. This summer he clocked a 4.52 40-yard dash time at a football camp. He should fit in very nicely alongside Adam Breneman at the tight end position.
Penn State now has 13 commitments and has the 25th ranked 2014 class according to ESPN. Penn State has room for a few more commitments thanks to an increase in scholarships beginning next season.
