High school football commitment announcements have continued to evolve, and the days of picking hats off of tables are gone. That’s so yesterday. Four-star defensive tackle Aeneas Hawkins decided to make a fully produced mini-movie.
The 265-pound defensive line prospect from Cincinnati decided to announce his decision to attend Penn State by making a comedic parody of Jordan Peele’s popular thriller Get Out!, and posting it to The Player’s Tribune.
He enlisted the help of Cincinnati native and comedian Gary Owen, and his uncle, former NFL wide receiver Andrew Hawkins. If there is an awards show for announcement videos, this would clean up.
