This past weekend it was a record breaking night for a pair of Penn State commits. Unsurprisingly, these record breaking nights came from a pair of top 100 commits in the Nittany Lions class. We will start with arguably the most important player in Penn State’s 2022 class - quarterback Drew Allar.
The Medina, Ohio, native was 32/43 for 391 yards and 4 touchdowns in a 35-0 victory for Medina. Allar has now thrown for 57 career touchdown passes which is a new Medina County record. Again, the Nittany Lions appear to finally have their elite QB in the fold in Allar.
The other record breaker over the weekend came from Nick Singleton, who 247Sports ranks as the top running back in the country. In a 42-14 victory over Wilson High School, the Reading native helped lead the way for Governor Mifflin High School by rushing for 137 yards and 3 touchdowns. Following this performance, Singleton is now the all-time leading rusher in Berks County high school football history.
