Three-Star Receiver Mac Hippenhammer Commits To Penn State

James Franklin’s Nittany Lions landed their second 2017 wide receiver Saturday, as three-star Fort Wayne, Ind., (R Nelson Snider) standout Mac Hippenhammer committed to Penn State over offers from Iowa and Michigan State, among others.

Hippenhammer is considered the nation’s 88th-overall receiver and the sixth-best prospect out of Indiana this cycle, according to 247Sports. He joins fellow three-star wideout Cameron Sullivan-Brown in Penn State’s Class of 2017, which could see another receiver added to the fold before National Signing Day in February. The Nittany Lions will wait it out on four-star Mark Webb’s decision, as the talented in-state prospect holds Penn State and Georgia in high regard, alongside his cousin — four-star running back and long-time target D’Andre Swift.

Hippenhammer picked up an offer from wide receivers coach Josh Gattis after impressing the staff with his speed and route-running at its Bowling Green satellite camp earlier this summer. The 6-foot, 170-pounder secured scholarship tenders from the Hawkeyes and Spartans in the next few days and would eventually take unofficial visits to each school, including a trip to check out State College in mid-July.

Hippenhammer fits the mold of redshirt sophomore speedster De’Andre Thompkins and could terrify Big Ten defenses out of the slot in Joe Moorhead’s spread attack or line up on the outside and burn corners over the top.
