The ink on the 2019 class is barely dry, but things are beginning to move quickly for the Class of 2020. The Opening Regional camps are taking place across the country, and future Nittany Lion linebacker Derek Wingo turned in a standout performance during the Miami event, earning MVP honors at the position.

A four-star prospect out of fabled St. Thomas Aquinas High School in Ft. Lauderdale, Wingo committed to Penn State back in Christmas Day. Not only did he win MVP honors for the linebacker group, he also turned in a huge testing score as well, ranking in the 99th percentile of all players tested.

Wingo projects as an outside linebacker at the next level, and is ranked 13th at that position nationally, and 194th overall. Penn State's 2020 class currently stands at four members, and ranks 17th nationally according to the 247Sports Composite.
