2023 4-Star CB Rodrick Pleasant has Penn State in top Six

Penn State Football

Rodrick Pleasant, a Class of 2023 four-star cornerback out of Gardena, California, has cut his school wish list down to six, and Penn State made it.

Penn State is in the mix, along with Boston College, California, Oregon, UCLA and USC.

Pleasant has 26 Division I offers and is the No. 9 player in California, the No. 12 cornerback and the No. 103 overall player in the nation according to 247Sports’ composite rankings.

The 5-foot-11, 170-pound corner out of Junipero Serra High School also plays offense for the Cavaliers but is expected to will play cornerback at the college level because of his elite speed.

Pleasant set the California state record in track when he ran a 10.40 100-meter dash and has also ran a 20.40 in the 200-meter 

Scouts are impressed with Pleasant’s speed and  his willingness to stick his head in and make tackles. He also can play special teams, especially at kickoff or punt returner. His highlight tape shows that he is electric with the ball in his hands.

Pleasant is a little undersized and will need to get stronger, but that shouldn’t be a problem when he goes into a college weight room.

Penn State would like to add Pleasant to an impressive defensive back room that also has  Lamont Payne, King Mack, Elliot Washington, DaKarri Nelson and Conrad Hussey.
