Eagles invite former Penn State basketball player to minicamp

Posted on May 5, 2022

The Philadelphia Eagles invited former Penn State basketball player John Harrar to minicamp.


Harrar is a fifth-year senior starter who will attend Philadelphia’s minicamp as a tight end. Before going to Penn State, he played football in high school. Harrar was a two-star recruit, ranking as the No. 64 player in Pennsylvania and the No. 134 tight end nationally, according to 247Sports.

He was committed to Army to play tight end, but decided to play basketball instead. Harrar played five seasons, finishing second in the Big Ten in the 2021-2022 season.

He will leave Penn State with the most games played — 146.

Since then, Tampa Bay also invited to Harrar to their Pro Combine last month.

The Eagles minicamp begins tomorrow, May 6, until May 7.
