Former Penn State punter/kicker Jordan Stout was drafted by the Baltimore Ravens with the No. 130 overall pick in the fourth round of the 2022 NFL Draft. Stout now joins former Nittany Lion specialists Robbie Gould (49ers) and Blake Gillikin (Saints) in the NFL.
Like Arnold Ebiketie and Jaquan Brisker drafted before him, Stout came to Penn State as a transfer after spending the first years of his career with Virginia Tech. In 2021, he had 59 touchbacks on 65 kickoffs to further cement his Touchback Jesus moniker. He averaged 46.5 yards per punt on 62 kicks. Stout also has some quirky stats as he went one of two passing for 18 yards in his final season. In 2019, Stout hit a Penn State-record 57-yard field goal at the end of the first half against Pitt. In the same game, Pat Narduzzi elected to have his kicker attempt a field goal from the one-yard line in which he doinked it off the upright.

The @PennStateFball punter went for an average of 46.5 yards on the year. His career-long 76-yard punt was tied for third longest in PSU history. @B1Gfootball - pic.twitter.com/ndWxtvZK9b
Best of luck to Penn State's punt god, Touchback Jesus.
