A pair of Big Ten schools appear to be coming down the final stretch in the recruiting process for King Mack, a four-star safety from Fort Lauderdale, Florida. After back-to-back official visits to East Lansing and State College, the Nittany Lions still appear to be on the inside track to Mack’s commitment.
Penn State has assembled some good quality depth in the defensive secondary in recent years. After the secondary was a strength of the team in 2021, the collective unit looks to once again be a strength in 2022. But Penn State will be in need of some new blood at the safety position after the 2022 season with expected departures of Ji’Ayir Broan and Keaton Ellis after this season. Adding a four-star talent to the safety depth chart would be great news for Penn State head coach James Franklin and defensive coordinator Manny Diaz.
The month of June has shown more and more traction for Penn State based on the recruiting predictions coming in and a decision is expected to be announced at some point this summer. Penn State already has a commitment from Mack’s high school teammate Conrad Hussey and the two could end up remaining teammates in Happy Valley.
Here’s a look at Mack’s recruiting profile as he approaches his decision date.
