Getting a player like Yetur Matos is always impressive. Getting a player like Yetur Matos to commit and never waiver, even though schools like Alabama and Clemson came calling, is even more impressive. On Wednesday, Penn State got Matos to sign his Letter of Intent, which is good, because only one word can describe the talented defensive end: impressive.

Scouting Report

Matos is a pass rusher, full stop. He is a serious problem for linemen, as he's tall with a massive wingspan, but strong and athletic, too. He's raw, sure, but if he puts it all together, it's hard to imagine that there will be many defensive linemen who create as much havoc as Matos. As he learns more about the position and grows into his body, look out.

Moving Forward

Penn State doesn't need Matos to play as a freshman, which is good, because he can spend his first year in college adding some weight onto his 6-foot-5 frame. He's still a little raw, so even though he's rangy and talented, taking a year could be best for Matos. Add in that the Nittany Lions have plenty of talent at defensive end and odds are Matos is between a Yellow light and a Red light right now.
