God is my strong fortress; And he guideth the perfect in his way.

Ngata is listed as the No. 2 all-purpose back in the 2020 cycle and is the ninth-best back overall in the class. A 5-foot-9, 180-pound ball carrier, Ngata is ranked as the No. 48 overall player in the class, per 247Sports.
He’s also the second-best prospect out of California.
Penn State has done an excellent job on the recruiting trail with the 2020 class. Already, the Nittany Lions have locked up verbal commitments from 11 players, six of which are four-star athletes. Currently, Penn State’s class ranks second in the B1G — behind Ohio State — and 13th nationally.
Ngata has received over two dozen offers.
