I want to start off by saying none of this would be possible without God. Thank you to my family, my friends, coaches, and teammates that helped me get to this place in life. With that being said, I am excited to say that I will be committing to… pic.twitter.com/68hY8BnyBV— Evan Mahaffey (@EvanMahaffey5) August 11, 2021
Evan Mahaffey, friends!
Hometown: Cincinnati, OH
High School: Archbishop Moeller
Weight: 175 pounds.
Ranking: ⭐⭐⭐ (247 Composite)
Notable Offers: Cincinnati, West Virginia, Xavier, Indiana, Kansas State, Ohio State (interest), Virginia Tech (interest)
Raw stars don’t tell the story, but the offer list does. Evan was getting interest from a number of schools Penn State would normally lose out to, and it’s good to see the staff put some work on that front in their first full recruiting class.
Evan has been around the game all his life, as his father, Jamie Mahaffey, used to coach
As mentioned in one of the videos above, Mahaffey has spent time playing every position in high school, so that sort of versatility will be quite useful depending on where the Nittany Lions find themselves in need. The 5 is probably out of the question unless Evan grows three to four inches in the next year, but being able to otherwise play the others effectively can create interesting matchups in the future.
Welcome to Penn State, Evan!
