The Panthers’ signal caller is ranked the No. 10 dual-threat quarterback nationally and the No. 11 recruit in Pennsylvania in the Class of 2022 by 247Sports.

Additionally, 247Sports national recruiting analyst Brian Dohn predicts that Pribula will commit to join the Nittany Lions. Dohn has a 91% accuracy rate in 500 predictions all-time. In his Twitter post announcing the Penn State offer, Pribula included a photo of him as a kid in a Nittany Lions' uniform.

The 6-foot, 2-inch, 195-pound Pribula is coming off just his first season playing varsity quarterback, when he was 77 for 135 (57%) for 1,244 passing yards. He also rushed 62 times for 365 yards, averaging nearly 6 yards per carry. He scored 11 touchdowns, despite missing some time with a shoulder injury.

Pribula led the Panthers to a 9-1 regular-season record, a York-Adams League Division I title and a District 3 Class 6-A playoff berth.

Pribula played wideout during his freshman season at Central when his brother, Cade, was the Panthers' QB. Cade Pribula currently plays QB for Delaware at the FCS level.
