Penn State Football Lands Four-Star Prospect

by on June 27, 2019 11:18 AM

Penn State football landed yet another four-star recruit as athlete Enzo Jennings verbally committed to the program on Thursday morning

Jennings chose Penn State over Kentucky, Notre Dame, and Pitt, among others. He is the third-best player in his home state of Michigan and ranks as the seventh-best athlete and the No. 100 overall recruit across the nation, according to 247Sports’ composite rankings

The 6-foot-1, 185-pound athlete hails from Oak Park, Mich., and lists himself as both a cornerback and wide receiver on his Hudl profile. He plays his high school football at Oak Park High School, helping the team post a 9-2 record in 2018.

Jennings boiled his recruitment down to 11 teams — including Alabama, Georgia, Florida, and Ohio State — on Jan. 2, but the Nittany Lions ultimately won his commitment. The defensive back is the eighth player to make his pledge to play for Penn State in the month of June.

On arrival in Happy Valley, Jennings will join a talented group of defensive backs, which will likely be headlined by Tariq Castro-Fields in 2020, as well as new faces like Lackawanna College transfer Ji’Ayir Brown. Jennings is the 14th player to commit to Penn State in this cycle and just the second defensive back in James Franklin’s incoming recruiting class.

Penn State's 2020 class is now ranked third in the Big Ten by the 247 Network and 15th best in the nation.
