The Tale

After a dominant junior season in which he hauled in 45 receptions for 873 yards and scored 20 touchdowns, Daniel George landed an offer from Penn State on December 9. It didn’t take long for the Nittany Lions to make him a priority, as James Franklin visited the four-star prospect in late January. George reciprocated the interest, visiting Happy Valley multiple times over the winter and spring, eventually deciding to make the call for the Nittany Lions at the Lasch Bash.

George is ranked as the No. 208 player in the country, the No. 43 wide receiver overall, and the No. 8 prospect in Maryland.


George joins Justin Shorter to give Penn State two extremely talented wide receivers in 2018. Toss in four-star tight ends Zack Kuntz and Pat Freiermuth, and the Nittany Lions passing attack looks stacked for the foreseeable future.

When building a wide receiver prospect, George is what you’re looking for. Good size at 6-foot-2 to go along with lanky arms. He’s a solidly built kid too, especially in his lower body. Very good athlete — his 4.6 40 isn’t elite, but a 4.00 20-yard shuttle and a 35.9-inch vertical shows you the type of athlete he is. On the field, he’s still more of an athlete than a wide receiver currently, but the film speaks for itself; it’s touchdown after touchdown after touchdown for the Maryland product.

Welcome to Penn State, Daniel!
