Penn State Football Continues White Out Recruiting Momentum as Top Athlete Commits

Penn State Football continues to pick up steam on the recruiting trail, after steamrolling Iowa in Saturday night’s annual White Out.

Four-star 2025 athlete Brady O’Hara committed to Penn State Tuesday via X.


Listed as an athlete on 247Sports and a tight end on On3 Sports, O’Hara has been a longtime Nittany Lions target in the 2025 class.

Playing both tight end and defensive end for Pittsburgh’s North Catholic football team, O’Hara has recorded four catches for 115 yards and a touchdown on offense and ten tackles on defense in 2023.

Listed as the number 287 national prospect and number eight prospect in the state of Pennsylvania on the 2025 247Sports composite ranking, Penn State is getting an elite athlete that could slide into a few positions for James Franklin‘s team, depending on his development.

O’Hara committed to Penn State over offers from Pitt, WVU, and Wisconsin. O’Hara picked up an offer from Penn State in February and had visited Penn State’s campus a number of times since, including most recently for Penn State’s White Out victory over Iowa this past Saturday.

O’Hara is the fifth member of Penn State’s 2025 class and third to commit since the White Out. With O’Hara on board, Penn State’s 2025 class sits at number five nationally in the 2025 class rankings by 247 Sports
