All 105 is a Nittany Sports Now series profiling each Penn State football player. Here is a profile of  freshman safety Mehki Flowers.

Height: 6-feet

Weight: 179 pounds

Hometown: Harrisburg, Pennsylvania 

Before Penn State: 

Flowers comes from Central Dauphin East High School in Harrisburg, where he was a four-year captain and a state champion in 2020.

Flowers was named to the all-state team in both 2020 and ‘21 and was a semifinalist for Pennsylvania’s “Mr. Football.”

A four-star recruit, Flowers chose Penn State over schools such as Cincinnati, Kentucky, Nebraska, Pitt, Rutgers, Virginia Tech and West Virginia. He announced his commitment New Year’s Day, 2021.

Where he stands: 

Like most true freshman, Flowers likely won’t see a whole lot of playing time barring injuries to players further up on the depth chart.

Penn State’s has talent coming back at safety, led by NCAA interceptions leader Ji’Ayir Brown, so it likely won’t be necessary to throw Flowers into the fire too often in the defensive backfield.

But Flowers is capable of playing more than just safety. During his recruitment, there was questions as to whether Flowers would play on offense or defense at the next level.

For now, however, he’s settled on safety, and will look to make an impact in Penn State’s defensive backfield sooner rather than later.

A quote about Flowers: 

“Everything that I saw in this first practice is he’s as good as advertised,” Imhotep Charter High School head coach Devon Johnson said prior to 2022’s “Big 33” All Star game between the top high school players in Pennsylvania and Maryland. “He runs around. He’s making plays from the numbers to the numbers. I think that’s all you can ask for in a young free safety like that.”
