Penn State Football defensive end – Dani Dennis-Sutton
Dani Dennis-Sutton is the only name on this list that did not enroll early, but make no mistake about it, he still has all the potential in the world to be a key contributor at defensive end for Penn State Football in 2022.
With the pass rush being one of the potential weaknesses for Penn State Football in 2022, primarily due to a lack of returning experience and production at defensive end, the Nittany Lions will need someone to step up and be a game-wrecker on the edge, and Dennis-Sutton could be just the guy to do that.
The 6-foot-5, 250-pound defensive end from Maryland is far from your average high school senior. Combine that with elite speed and power, as well as good fundamentals, and Dennis-Sutton can and will be a difference-maker in year one for Penn State Football.
He may not begin the season as one of the two starting defensive ends, but he will certainly get his opportunities early and often. The more game reps he gets, the better he will become, and the more playing time he will earn.
By the end of the regular season, Dani Dennis-Sutton will be in the starting lineup for the Nittany Lions, and will have recorded at least four sacks, which would be the most by a Penn State freshman (redshirt or true), since Shaka Toney tallied 3.5 sacks as a redshirt freshman in 2017.
