By April 2023, Pettijohn had collected scholarship offers from USC, Texas A&M and Duke. It’s no surprise that Mike Elko re-offered Pettijohn to Texas A&M in December. Florida State extended a summer offer, while Texas and Ohio State entered the mix in the fall. Pettijohn reports getting his Georgia offer last month.

A standout of McKinney (Texas) High School, Pettijohn is listed as measuring 6-2 and 205 pounds. On the 247Sports Composite, Pettijohn is rated 4-stars, the No. 3 linebacker, No. 7 Lone Star State recruit and No. 33 prospect overall in the Class of 2025.
