Williamsport High School (PA) running back Treyson Potts has emerged as one of the top running backs to watch in Pennsylvania’s 2019 class. Through his first four games, Potts has rushed 55 times for 652 yards (11.9 yards per carry) and nine rushing touchdowns. Potts has gotten the attention of the Penn State coaching staff and was on hand this past weekend to watch the Nittany Lions defeat Temple. Potts came away from the visit impressed.
“It was a great experience up at Penn State,” said Potts. “They treated myself and my teammate that came with me well. I was able to speak with Coach (Charles) Huff, Coach (James) Franklin and Coach (Joe) Moorehead. I also was allowed into their locker room after the game and I got to talk to some of the players and coaches. I felt that was great too.”
Even though he’s only a sophomore, Potts has already impressed the Penn State coaching staff. “The coaches like my speed, vision, and footwork,” said Potts. “The coaches also said that they could build on my size (5-foot-10, 183 pounds).”
Potts had good things to say about Penn State’s offensive performance against Temple. Potts added, “I thought the offense was nice and I feel like I could definitely be a good fit and mesh in with it.”
Potts does not have any other unofficial visits set up but does plan to return to Penn State when the Nittany Lions take on Ohio State on October 22.
Cleezy’s Take: Potts has emerged as one of the top prospects in Pennsylvania’s 2019 class. Potts ran for 894 yards and 14 rushing touchdowns in his freshman year (2015 season) and looks like he's capable of doubling that effort by the end of this season.
