Four-star 2022 center Kebba Njie has released his final three schools - Kansas State, Butler, and Penn State. The Indiana native will announce his college decision at noon Saturday.

Njie is the No. 103 player in the 2022 class and the fourth-ranked player in the state of Indiana – a state where Micah Shrewsberry has a lot of ties.

The 6'8 big man took official visits to all three of his finalists, with the most recent being a trip to Penn State on September 10.

Should Njie choose Penn State, he'd be the highest-ranked big man in program history.

The 2022 Nittany Lions recruiting class already includes commitments from top-150 prospect guard Jameel Brown, as well as top-215 prospects forward Evan Mahaffey and guard Kanye Clary. Should Njie choose Penn State, he will not only represent a much-needed big man in the group but he will also become the highest-rated player in the class (No. 103 nationally).

A commitment from Njie would elevate Penn State to the No. 9-rated class in the country for the 2022 cycle.
