The University of Pennsylvania’s combination of football and academics was too enticing for Nicholas Fryhoff to resist.
The Foothill High defensive end recently committed to the Ivy League contender, picking the Quakers over a few other schools, including Arizona of the Pac-12.
“I have a chance to join the Wharton School at UPenn, which is the top business school in the country,” Fryhoff, a senior, explained.
“By being a part of a program like this, as well as having the opportunity to build connections with so many people involved with Wharton, UPenn puts me in the best position to reach my full potential in the professional world.
“In regards to athletics, the UPenn football family is unlike any other. Their top-notch facilities and amazing coaching staff produce some of the best athletes in the Ivy League, including a few NFL players.”
Last fall, Fryhoff (6-5, 235) helped Foothill win the North Hills League title and go 11-1 overall. The Knights beat Villa Park and Yorba Linda in nonleague games.
Fryhoff was a second-team all-North Hills League selection from a strong defense.
He is the second class of 2021 recruit from Orange County to commit to Penn, joining St. Margaret’s defensive lineman Nick Ostund.
The duo continues a strong flow of O.C. football recruits to Penn. Last season, former St. Margaret’s wide out Ryan Cragun led the Quakers in receiving with 58 catches for 885 yards. JSerra products Nick Robinson and Sam Philippi were standouts at quarterback and defensive back, respectively.
La Habra quarterback Ryan Zanelli and Mater Dei outside linebacker Nate White are freshmen to watch. Penn last earned a share of the Ivy League title in 2016.
