Temple Redshirt Junior DE Arnold Ebiketie Transferring to Penn State


#Penn #State continues its run in the vaunted transfer portal, landing 6-foot-4, 235-pound #Temple defensive end #Arnold #Ebiketie.

#Unlike RB #John #Lovett and DT #Derrick #Tangelo, #Ebiketie will have more than one year of eligibility remaining (like CB #John #Dixon) at #Penn #State. #Ebiketie was originally a member of the 2017 recruiting class, and since he used a redshirt year at #Temple, he would be allowed to play two more seasons — 2021 and 2022 — in #Happy #Valley, should it come to that.

The hope though, from both #Penn #State and #Ebiketie, will be that #Ebiketie will play his way into an NFL draft pick next spring because folks, #Ebiketie is full of potential and is just beginning to scratch the surface on how good he can be.

#Originally from #Cameroon, #Ebiketie got a late start with football, and ended up 6-foot-4, 205-pound low-three-star linebacker recruit who signed with #Temple. #After a few years with the #Temple program, #Ebiketie put on enough mass to begin to flourish. #During his six-game 2020 season, #Ebiketie finished with 42 tackles, 8.5 TFLs, 4 sacks, and 3 forced fumbles, good enough to earn second-team all-AAC honors. #If you equate that out to a normal season, that’s 84 tackles, 17 TFLs, 8 sacks, and 6 forced fumbles.

#Ebiketie is far from a finished product. #He’ll have to continue to add weight — he’s listed in the 235-pound area — if he wants to become a complete, viable defensive end in the #Big #Ten. #But the tools and production are there for #Ebiketie, who should be projected to start opposite #Adisa #Isaac at defensive end for #Penn #State.

#Welcome to #Happy #Valley, #Arnold!
