Penn State target Coziah Izzard

Penn State will be playing host to a ton of top-level talent this weekend. Let's take a look at who will be coming to campus.


Three-star offensive tackle Drake Metcalf flew in from California to pay the staff a visit. Projected as an interior lineman at the next level, Metcalf is the eighth-ranked center in the class of 2020.

Indiana native, and four-star DT Cole Brevard made the trek over to State College for the weekend. The No. 1 player in Indiana in the class of 2020 is an instant impact caliber player. The Nittany Lions will need to beat out some of the nation's top programs to earn his services. Judging by his tweet, he is also very matter of fact, which I appreciate.

Hoping to keep up their success with Virginia native, three-star corner Joseph Johnson III will also be on campus this weekend. Standing at 6'3, Johnson would be one of the tallest corners to ever play at Penn State, making him a very intriguing player. The Nittany Lions could really put themselves in the lead for the 2020 prospect with a strong visit this weekend.

Perhaps the biggest name to be in Happy Valley this weekend is Coziah Izzard. At 6'3/280, the four-star defensive end would be a huge get for Penn State's 2020 class. The DeMatha product the No. 21 defensive end in his class and the tenth ranked player in Maryland. He projects as an interior lineman at the collegiate level.


The Nittany Lions have offered 2021 offensive lineman Jager Burton. The Kentucky native could be one of the highest rated players in his home state when it's all said and done.

Penn State heads ventured to the other side of the country for this one, offering Washington cornerback Ayden Hector. The No. 16 corner in the 2020 class, Hector is a very high-ceiling prospect who will cause quarterbacks headaches for years.

Four-star defensive end Kris Jenkins, son of the former NFL player of the same name, has also scored a Penn State offer. The Maryland native holds offers from some of the top programs on the East Coast.

With only one offensive lineman committed for 2020, Penn State has offered three-star O-lineman Josh Fryar. At 6'5/295, Fryar has the size to play just about anywhere on the line. He is currently the second-ranked player in Indiana.
