Before Penn State: Onoh was the last player to commit and sign to Penn State’s 23 Class, doing so on February’s late signing day. He committed to Penn State over Michigan State, Ole Miss and Rutgers, among other schools. The four-star had a standout career at Baltimore’s Dundalk High School, helping the team to a 26-4 overall record in three seasons. As a senior, Onoh had 46 pancake blocks and allowed just one sack.
Where he stands: It’s unlikely that Onoh will make an instant impact at Penn State. He’s joining a loaded offensive line that returns every major contributor except for Juice Scruggs, who’s now a Houston Texan. Penn State is also adding three additional ‘23s in five-star J’ven Williams (Wyomissing, Pennsylvania) and four-stars Alex Birchmeier (Ashburn, Virginia) and Anthony Donkoh (Lightridge, Virginia). All three of those freshmen had the advantage of playing spring ball, which Onoh did not. Nonetheless, Onoh has solid potential, and if he reaches that, there’s no reason he shouldn’t be a solid contributor for Penn State in the year’s ahead.
A quote by Onoh: “When I went there, it pretty much felt like home. I just saw a lot of genuineness from all the coaches and the players, so I really felt like I would fit in there. From all the stuff that the coaches were saying and we talked about, I really believe that they can make me into a great player. I’m excited to be with them.” — Onoh to Blue-White Illustrated on his commitment
A quote about Onoh: “I thought Chimdy was a really good get for us late. He’s a guy that we think has tremendous upside.” — James Franklin to reporters at his end-of-season presser in February.
