2023 Recruit Tariq Blanding Receives An Offer From Penn State

Penn State has extended an offer to 2023 recruit, Tariq Blanding. Blanding is a 6-foot-2, 280 defensive tackle out of Christ The King High School in Middle Village, NY. So far, he has received offers from Bowling Green, Boston College, Arizona, and Nebraska.

In the 2021 season, Blanding recorded 49 tackles and 4 sacks for the Irish. Christ The King High Scholl head coach Jason Brown stated that “Tyriq Blanding has the fastest get-off I’ve ever had at Christ The King”. Blanding was clocked in at a 4.97 in a 40-yard dash in various offseason camps. Brown also states that he is a quiet kid, but on the field, he is a “Manchild”.

Brown compared Blanding to another Christ of King alum and current Miami Hurricane defensive tackle Jared Harrison-Hunte. Brown thinks that he is a little better at this stage of his career than Harrison Hunte. Blanchard does not have a star rating at this point in his career so it will be interesting to see his progress during offseason camps and his production during the season.
