Penn State Commit offered by SEC School


Penn State football’s longest-reigning class of 2025 has an offer from an SEC school.

On Tuesday evening, four-star RB commit KiAndrea Barker, who has been committed to Penn State for more than a year, posted on X (formerly Twitter) that he has been offered by Arkansas

This makes sense for a number of reasons.

First, despite his dedication, Barker has received offers from other schools. Since announcing his commitment last April, Barker’s has received offers from Auburn, Colorado, Duke, Houston, Oregon, TCU, UCF, USC and Wisconsin. There’s also the fact that Barker grew up in Arkansas and played his first two seasons for Beebe High School in the state. From there, he transferred to The Woodlands School in Houston, Texas and will play his senior season at Miami Central High School in Florida, where he will team with another Penn State commit, QB Bekkem Kritza.

Nittany Sports Now spoke exclusively with Barker when he announced his commitment.

“They showed me love,” Barker told NSN, “and then they gave me my first big offer when I was in my freshman year, and they’ve had a mutual relationship ever since.”

“And going there and showing the love that they showed us, it felt like it was the right thing to do.”

RB greats like Franco Harris, Curt Warner and Larry Johnson left their mark on Happy Valley.

Today, Nick Singleton and Kaytron Allen are one of, if not the top duo in college football.

This lineage was one of the main things that inspired Barker to choose Penn State. His bond with coach James Franklin and his staff also played a major role.

It remains to be seen if he will remain committed until signing day in December.
