For the first time in more than three months, Penn State has added to its Class of 2021 commitment list.

Khalil Dinkins, a three-star athlete from the Pittsburgh area, verbally committed to the Nittany Lions on Wednesday.

Dinkins is listed at 6-foot-3, 220 pounds, and both and 247sports list him as a three-star prospect. He stars in the WPIAL at tight end and linebacker, but he told Blue-White Illustrated he was recruited as a tight end.

Rivals ranks Dinkins as the No. 23 overall player in Pennsylvania in the 2021 class.

It has been a while since Penn State landed a prospect in the upcoming class, and he’s actually the first in-state prospect to commit to the program since Lonnie White Jr. did in May. But, we’ll see if this — coupled with Penn State’s return to the filed on Saturday, spurs any kind of momentum
