HIGHLIGHTS

THE TALE

Penn State offered Flowers back in June of 2019 and immediately stepped to the forefront of his recruitment. The Central Pennsylvania product immediately visited twice and the Nittany Lions have long been considered the favorite. Offers from Arizona State and West Virginia made things interesting, but Penn State held steadfast before earning a commitment on New Years Day.

OUTLOOK

Flowers is a big-time athlete who could play either safety or wide receiver at the next level and has the potential to be an all-conference selection at either position. He’s got a good frame and is already well put together, but could probably play fairly easily at 205 pounds.

He’s a physical wideout who has become adept at going up to high point the ball and making sure he catches the ball away from his body. Additionally, he’s a great weapon after the catch, as he’s deceptively shifty and his long strides make him hard to run down.

WIth Anthony Ivey and Kaden Saunders already on board, the Nittany Lions currently have the best wide receiver recruiting class in the nation, which is quite the compliment to new wide receiver coach Taylor Stubblefield. Having the other two on board also allows the Nittany Lions to be fluid with Flowers’ position and put him in the best spot to succeed at the next level.
