On the eve of National Signing Day, Penn State might be on the verge of putting a cherry on top of a strong recruiting class of offensive linemen by adding Chimdy Onoh.
The Class of 2023 four-star offensive tackle from Dundalk High School in Maryland has received three Crystal Ball predictions to Penn State.
247Sports national recruiting experts Steve Wiltfong and Brian Dohn each predict Onoh to Penn State, each giving them a confidence ranking of six. Ole Miss insider David Johnson of Inside the Rebels also had Onoh to Penn State with a confidence level of seven.
Penn State is currently in his top four, along with Michigan State, Ole Miss and Rutgers, as Onoh gets set to make his decision Wednesday on National Singing Day.
Onoh (6-foot-6, 270 pounds) is the No. 20 player in Maryland, the No. 20 offensive tackle, and the No. 257 player nationally according to 247 Sports’ rankings.
Onoh has played tackle and guard at Dundalk but mainly plays left tackle. He’s explosive at the snap with a good initial punch. Onoh plays with nasty aggression and plays to the whistle in the running game. He’s athletic and shows good footwork on protection. He’ll have to bulk up a bit when he gets to Penn State, and Onoh has the frame to do so after he completes his basketball season for Dundalk.
If Chimdy Onoh signs with Penn State, he would join fellow four-star offensive linemen in guards J’Ven Williams (Wyomissing, Pennsylvania) and Alex Birchmeier (Ashburn, Virginia) and offensive tackle Anthony Donkoh, which will cement a top 15 recruiting class in the 2023 recruiting cycle.
Penn State also has offensive linemen committed in the 2024 and 2025 classes. ’24 four-star Cooper Cousins (McDowell High School) committed to Penn State last January, and ’25 four-star Jaelyne Matthews (Toms River, New Jersey) committed earlier this week.
