Lackawanna College Linebacker Zymir Cobbs Commits To Penn State Football

Another Lackawanna College player is joining James Franklin’s program, folks.

Linebacker Zymir Cobbs announced Thursday night via Twitter that he’s committing to Penn State football.

“Excited to Announce I’ll be continuing my Education and Football career at Penn State University!” Cobbs wrote on Twitter. “So grateful for the opportunity, thank you to everyone who has helped me get to this point!”

Cobbs played two years at Lackawanna College, including a two-game 2020 season, after his four years at Imhotep Institute Charter High School. There, he totaled 56 tackles, 14 for a loss, and five sacks in 16 games.

The Philadelphia native graduated from Lackawanna College this past May. He’ll carry four years of eligibility with him when he arrives in Happy Valley.

Penn State’s strong connection to Lackawanna continues to show, as Cobbs joins Nittany Lions Jaquan Brisker, Norval Black, Ji’Ayir Brown, Bradley King, and Anthony Whigan as players who had stints at the junior college. Additionally, Lackawanna College safety Tyrece Mills committed to Franklin’s Class of 2022 last month.

To see what Cobbs may bring to Beaver Stadium in the near future, check out his highlights from high school and Lackawanna here.
