4-Star DE Josh Kaindoh Confirms Official Visit To Penn State

Four-star defensive end Josh Kaindoh will be in attendance when Penn State welcomes Michigan State to town on Saturday.

The Penn State Nittany Lions will welcome one of the nation’s top recruits to campus this weekend for the regular-season finale against Penn State. Four-star defensive end Josh Kaindoh confirmed on Wednesday that he’d be using an official visit to check out Happy Valley.

Kaindoh, originally from Baltimore, Maryland, but now playing for IMG Academy in Bradenton, Florida, committed to his home-state Maryland Terrapins on April 30, 2016. However, that commitment is anything but solid.

His trip to Penn State could work out to be perfect timing for head coach James Franklin, who has his team firmly in the running for a berth in the Big Ten title game. The Nittany Lions need to beat Michigan State, who is 3-8, and need Ohio State to beat Michigan to head to Indianapolis. Given what’s at stake, the home environment should provide the perfect opportunity to impress Kaindoh.

Kaindoh is listed at 6’6″ and 252 pounds, and he is ranked as the nation’s No. 6 defensive end and No. 53 overall prospect.
