Five-Star Long Snapper Blaise Sokach-Minnick Commits To Penn State Football

A wild stretch of recruiting for Penn State football continued Tuesday when long snapper Blaise Sokach-Minnick committed to the Nittany Lions.

Although not ranked by standard outlets like 247Sports, Sokach-Minnick earned a five-star grade from Rubio Long Snapping, the “top authority on long snappers” spearheaded by long snapper trainer Chris Rubio.

Rubio Long Snapping’s rankings suggest Sokach-Minnick could wind up as a first-year starter and scholarship player at Penn State. Sokach-Minnick has attended several of Rubio’s camps since 2019.

Sokach-Minnick, who hails from West Pittston, Pa., and plays at Wyoming Area High School, turned down a scholarship from Albany to commit to Penn State as a walk-on.

In his notes, Rubio particularly emphasized Sokach-Minnick’s size and strength. Rubio said the 6’3″, 205-pound prospect “already looks like a college tight end” and has a “tremendous frame.”

Sokach-Minnick joins a number of talented special-teamers in Penn State’s Class of 2022, including five-star punter Alex Bacchetta. Additionally, five-star kicker Sander Sahaydak will arrive in Happy Valley alongside the Class of 2021.
