Four-Star Defensive Tackle Karamo Dioubate Commits To Penn State

Franklin/beaver stadium stock

The Class of 2016 keeps getting stronger for James Franklin and Penn State as they added their 19th recruit with the commitment of four-star recruit Karamo Dioubate.

The 6-foot-3, 279 pound defensive tackle out of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, is the fourth defensive tackle to commit to an already stellar defensive line with Ellison Jordan, Christian Colon, and Michael Dwumfour, Penn State will get some more help in the trenches from the Class of 2016. Dioubate is also the second Philadelphia native to commit to Penn State, along with three-star linebacker Shaka Toney.

Dioubate was mulling offers from other major college football programs like Alabama, Ohio State, Auburn, Michigan State, and Nebraska. As well as schools like Pitt and Rutgers.

The Philly native will help keep Bob Shoop’s defense a formidable one as Dioubate adds a lot of strength and defensive prowess to the already stellar defensive. Dioubate’s commitment  absolutely makes the 2016 recruiting class — that was already ranked No. 6 in the country — even stronger.
