Penn State Signee Nick Singleton named Maxwell Football Club Offensive National Player of the Year

Nick Singleton didn’t need any more validation for being one of the top high school football players in America.

The Penn State signee out of Governor-Mifflin High School— who is a four-star recruit according to 247 Sports’s composite ratings and a five-star according to its individual rating— was the first Nittany Lion signee ever to be named Gatorade National High School Football Player of the Year back in December.

Thursday morning, he became the first Nittany Lion signee to win the Maxwell Club Offensive National Player of the Year in the award’s 15-year history,

Singleton joins a club that includes: Alabama quarterback and reigning Heisman Trophy winner Bryce Young, former Clemson and current Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Trevor Lawrence and former Alabama running back, Heisman Trophy winner and current Tennessee Titan Derrick Henry.

Singleton’s senior-season numbers were outrageous to say the least as he rushed for 2,059 yards, 44 touchdowns and a 12.7 yards per carry average, leading Governor Mifflin High School to a 10-1 record and a district championship game berth. He was also named the Adidas All-American Bowl Offensive Player of the Year earlier this month.

Singleton is already in State College, arriving earlier this month as an early enrollee. The Penn State running game, which struggled mightily at times in 2021, might have brighter days ahead of it, with Singleton and Kaytron Allen— a four-star form IMG Academy— coming in, and Keyvone Lee, who averages nearly five yards per carry through two seasons, set to enter his junior year.
