New, 35 comments

The 2022 class gets its second commitment!

Evan Mahaffey, friends!

The Skinny

Hometown: Cincinnati, OH
High School: Archbishop Moeller
Class: 2022
Position: SF
Height: 6-foot-5
Weight: 175 pounds.
Ranking: ⭐⭐⭐ (247 Composite)
Notable Offers: Cincinnati, West Virginia, Xavier, Indiana, Kansas State, Ohio State (interest), Virginia Tech (interest)

Highlights

The Tale

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

Outlook

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!
