The opening

Linebacker Curtis Jacobs showed off some quick feet during position drills. The Maryland native recently made a jump in the 247 Composite Rankings, entering the top 100. He is now the No. 6 linebacker in the class of 2020.

The newest Nittany Lion commit, RJ Adams showed what makes him one of the top offensive line prospects along the East Coast. 

Fellow offensive line commit Golden Achumba dominated the offensive line drills, showing off some pretty impressive lower body strength in the process. Already 6'4/330, Achumba has a very high ceiling and should earn that fourth star sooner rather than later if he continues to progress.

Both Adams and Achumba were named to the OL Final Five for their performances. Penn State target, and DeMatha teammate of Achumba, Coziah Izzard was named to the DL Final Five after a strong day. 


2021 running back Will Shipley picked up a Penn State offer. The top all-purpose back in his class, the North Carolina native also holds offers from Wisconsin, Notre Dame, Tennessee, and his hometown NC State Wolfpack.

The Nittany Lions have offered 2021 linebacker Terrence Lewis. The Miami native is the No. 65 prospect overall and second-ranked linebacker in his class.
