Editor’s Note: I (Patrick Koerbler) am a big dumb idiot who forgot to schedule Enzo Jennings, who came in at No. 8 on our list — so here is his profile now.
BSD’s recruiting staff sat down for a roundtable on each prospect Penn State signed in the 2020 class. Coming in at No. 8 was four-star DB Enzo Jennings.
What makes you excited about Enzo Jennings?
“He’s long. He’s fast. He’s instinctive. Jennings is everything you want from a high-level safety prospect. He may have to become a bit more physical and more comfortable around the LOS, but the tools are there to be a really good one.” --Clay
What worries you about Enzo Jennings?
“A part of me worries that he’s a tweener. He has good cover skills, but doesn’t quite have the quickness or speed to be a standout corner — and at the same time, doesn’t quite have the build or aggression to be a safety.” --Patrick
Do you think Enzo Jennings will be redshirted next season? Around what point of his career do you think he pushes for meaningful playing time?
“The depth chart certainly sets up well for Jennings. Lamont Wade, Jaquan Brisker and Jonathan Sutherland return at safety, but Sutherland did not play defense in three of Penn State’s final four games. Redshirt freshman Tyler Rudolph and JUCO incomer Ji’Ayir Brown will compete for reps at safety, too. Jennings will be given every opportunity to see the field in the fall, but I believe he will end up redshirting after the staff determines that’s a better course of action than burning his redshirt to play special teams and be the third or fourth safety in the rotation.” --Marty
What is your projection for Enzo Jennings: depth provider, starter, multi-year starter, all-conference, all-american?
Marty: Multi-year starter
Patrick: Multi-year starter
Lastly, where do you have Enzo Jennings ranked in Penn State’s class?
