Dani Dennis-Sutton announcement time: Here’s when the 5-star DE will decide

Top Penn State football recruiting target Dani Dennis-Sutton has locked in a decision time.

The five-star defensive end from Maryland who is picking mainly between the Nittany Lions and Georgia will make his choice public at 5 p.m. ET on Thursday, July 22 at Owing Mills McDonogh High, he said in a Twitter post on Tuesday afternoon.

Dennis-Sutton, who stands 6-foot-5, 253 pounds and has 35 reported offers, is Rivals' No. 1 player at his position and the No. 11 Class of 2022 talent overall. He also tops the individual prospect board in his home state.

“Now that I got these visits in, I have a real feel for all of these schools," Dennis-Sutton told BWI previously.

"It’s going to be hard to pick one. I wish I could go to all of them, but we’ll figure it out. I know I need to get this over with soon.”

Seven FutureCase predictions have been logged for head coach James Franklin's program since BWI expert Ryan Snyder put his own in back on Friday, including five that flipped from the Bulldogs to the Nittany Lions. Alabama was also in the mix at one point and received an official visit.

Dennis-Sutton, who will play in the All-American Bowl in January 2022, is considered one of the nation's best uncommitted prospects, though he won't have that moniker for long, of course.

Penn State has a pair of defensive ends currently committed in this cycle (Pittsburgh's Tyreese Fearbry and Philadelphia's Ken Talley) while Georgia has one in in-state four-star Darris Smith.

By the end of Thursday, one of those two programs will have not just another defensive end committed but also one of their biggest wants in the Class of 2022.

As of Tuesday evening, Penn State sits at No. 3 in the team rankings while Georgia is No. 11.

"It’s stressful, but I will say that no matter where I end up, I’m confident in my ability," Dennis-Sutton told BWI.

"I don’t mean that in an arrogant way, but I am a confident person and I feel blessed to be in this position. I really do wish I could go to all of these schools.”
