After visiting for the Blue White game, 6’2″ 235 pound DC linebacker Yannick Ngakoue finally received an offer from Penn State. Yannick is rated as the #17 outside linebacker in the country by Rivals and as the 18th best inside linebacker in the country by 247Sports. To add to that diversity, much of his film shows Ngakoue playing at defensive end. He is a beast on his film, playing all over the field and simply out-muscling his opponents. I think he could play a variety of positions at the next level, including even tight end.
Yannick is high on Auburn and Maryland and also holds offers from Ohio State, Oklahoma, Notre Dame, Florida State and many others.
With the linebackers on Penn State’s board committing elsewhere, expect more and more offers to come out.
