Let's Talk Camp
The Rivals 3 Stripe Camp presented by Adidas headed to the Buckeye state this past weekend. Standouts during the camp included Penn State commit Jesse Luketa, the 6-foot-3-inch, 225 pound linebacker from Erie, Pa. The staff at Rivals describes him as a "punishing inside linebacker," who hasn't slowed down despite gaining some upper body weight.
More from Rivals:
Some of Luketa’s opponents in the cat-and-mouse drill were sent stumbling backwards after a seemingly light touch. Luketa’s long speed was tested during the one-on-one session, but his instincts really helped him get the jump on some passes.
Another noticeable camp attendee is four-star defensive end Tyreke Smith. Smith is currently weighing offers from the likes of Ohio State, USC, and Penn State, and still ranks high as a target for Brent Pry's defense.
Welcome, Kingsley Enagbare
In case you missed it, Penn State offered three-star defensive end Kingsley Enagbare (Atlanta, GA). Enagbare is currently juggling offers from the likes of Auburn, South Carolina, Georgia, and East Carolina.
Three-star defensive end Jayson Oweh (Blairstown, NJ) recently received offers from Ohio State and Notre Dame. The Blair Academy product is getting a ton of attention, but there's still a strong chance that he still ends up at Penn State.
Aeneas Hawkins and the Legacy of Ohio State
Cincinnati's Archbishop Moeller High School has been a gold mine for Urban Meyer and Co. the past few years. The school, with nine state championships under their belt, has produced stars such as Sam Hubbard and Jake Hausmann for the Buckeyes. Now, Ohio State has their eyes on four-star defensive tackle Aeneas Hawkins. Hawkins recently sat down with our friends at Eleven Warriors to discuss his relationship with the Buckeyes and where's he's at with the commitment process.
But does a commitment to Ohio State make sense? Urban Meyer's squad already has one of the nation's top DTs committed in five-star Taron Vincent with many more interested. In addition, Hawkins also holds offers from a host of schools, including Louisville, Duke, Nebraska, Marshall, Iowa, Oklahoma, Indiana, Georgia, Alabama, South Carolina, and Penn State.
Hawkins took a visit to Happy Valley in March and described his overall visit as "very well." For Hawkins, Penn State still remains a priority, and we'll see what happens next.
"Penn State was and is one of, if not my top school. I love that coaching staff, I love the players, I love the commits."
