The Penn State football team is moving ahead with a new quarterback, adding a quarterback with a history of success in his first season on campus.
The team has already signed quarterbacks Kyle Juszczyk, Jake Rudock, Dwayne Haskins and Zach Mettenberger, and the news about Rudock’s commitment to the program was confirmed by his parents on Thursday.
The addition of Rudock means the Nittany Lions have the best quarterback on their roster heading into the 2018 season.
Juszczak was a three-star recruit out of Ohio State, where he led the Buckeyes to a 9-1 record and the national title.
He also helped the Buckeye offense average nearly 4,000 yards a game in his lone season.
Rudock was rated the No. 1 quarterback in the Class of 2019 by 247Sports and was rated as the No, 7 prospect in the nation by Scout.
Jusszczaks commitment to Penn State was first reported by PennLive.com.
He told the website he plans to enroll early in the fall for his junior year.
He will begin in 2019, and play in 2018 and 2019.
He could make his Penn State debut on Oct. 31 against Iowa.
The 6-foot-2, 215-pound Rudock also was a top-50 recruit by 247 Sports and No. 5 by ESPN.
He was rated a three star prospect by Scout and the No., 23 prospect in Nebraska by 247.
Rudlock committed to Nebraska on Sept. 5.
His parents, Jeff and Lisa Rudock were first-generation college basketball players who attended Penn State and were fans of the program.
Their son, Kyle, played for the Wolfpack for four years and was a key member of the Nitty Gritty Dirt Track team.
Kyle graduated from Penn State in 2017 and played his final season in 2018.
