Kicker (6-6, 220) Nwosu commits to PSU

Penn State received a commitment for the class of 2021 from highly rated kicker Gabe Nwosu on Wednesday.

Nwosu, from the Bullis School in Potomac, Md., is notable for his size alone. He’s listed at 6-foot-6 and 220 pounds.

Nwosu received high praise for his performance at the Kohl’s Football Kicking and Punting Camps, which posted this information about him on its website:

“Nwosu had a huge showing in July of 2020 at Kohl’s National Scholarship Camp. He is technically clean with his swing and he works up and through contact well. He had some very impressive punts at camp with 5.2-5.3 hang times and continues to show that he can use his long levers well. He hit multiple 50+ yard punts during the charting portion of camp. His huge frame allowed him to hit some very impressive kickoffs and field goals. Nwosu’s talent is very impressive and his coordination is catching up with his body! He literally has NFL potential as a K/P.”

“After praying with my family with this huge decision, I have decided to accept my offer and commit to Penn State University,” Nwosu wrote on Twitter. “Thank you Coach Franklin, Coach Lorig, and Coach Raisbeck for this life changing opportunity.”
