Khalil Dinkins – TE (RS So.)
Now I know he has Theo Johnson and Tyler Warren in front of him, but we all know that Penn State Football is one of few programs where the third tight end gets playing time that’s not on special teams.
After a strong winter, winning a majority of the “competitor of the day” shoutouts from TE Coach Ty Howle, Khalil Dinkins is one of the players who had the most momentum heading into the spring. With the early reps that he received in the Blue-White game, Dinkins looks to be in a prime position to solidify his spot in the tight end room moving forward.
Some people that seem to think that incoming top-ranked freshman Andrew Rappleyea will push to take some of that playing time away, so watch for Dinkins to put in a ton of work this summer and try to put that idea to bed.
Just like the aforementioned Evans, Khalil Dinkins is another guy that you could say might have a little chemistry with Drew Allar, as the two hooked up for Dinkins’s first touchdown in the Ohio game as well.
