Utah Commit Kobe Boykin Takes Visit to Penn State

Kobe Boykin, a 2024 four-star athlete out of Orange, CA visited Penn State’s campus on Saturday.

Boykin is a 5-foot-9, 175-pound running back and wide receiver that verbally committed to the University of Utah last month. He received honors such as being a 2-time All-Orange Coast League Performer, First Team All-State, and The Orange Coast League Most Valuable Player.

Boykin has also received offers from Arizona, Arizona State, Pittsburgh, Liberty, Colorado State, Georgia Southern and San Jose State.

According to Nittany Nation, Boykin decided to go on a visit because of a phone call from coach Terry Smith. Boykin spoke on their conversation “I got on the phone and talked with coach Terry Smith and talked about everything.” He also stated that “He knows that I am committed to Utah, but he still wants to come after me. He was talking to me about the program and how the tradition is around there. I feel great that all my hard work is paying off after all I’ve been through.”

Although Boykin has committed to the Utes, keep in mind that he is only a sophomore and there is plenty of time for James Franklin and his staff to convince him to come to Happy Valley.
