Khalil Dinkins Signs Letter of Intent With Penn State University

Posted on:

National Letter of Intent signing day was held on Wednesday and senior linebacker and receiver Khalil Dinkins inked his LOI with Penn State University.

Among a bevy of accolades for Dinkins in 2020, the talented and versatile senior was named first-team all-state by MaxPreps and first-team all-conference by the Big 56. He was also chosen for the Fabulous 22 by the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette and the Trib HSSN’s Terrific 25.

A swiss-army knife on offense, Dinkins saw time at receiver, running back and quarterback in North Allegheny’s “Monster Package.” Dinkins rushed for 222 yards and four touchdowns on 34 carries. Through the air, he hauled in 20 receptions for 284 yards and a team-leading four receiving touchdowns.

A menace to opposing offenses, Dinkins delivered big plays for NA on defense, including a 40-yard interception return for a touchdown in a week three victory over Central Catholic.

At Penn State, Dinkins will be reunited with former North Allegheny defensive back Joey Porter, Jr. (Class of 2019), who is currently a redshirt freshman at Happy Valley.
