At the beginning of the week, the Nittany Lions had two commits in their 2024 recruiting class. Now, six days into the week, Penn State football recruiting has pulled four commits and has a top-15 class — once again, James Franklin and his staff are putting together a top-notch class.

Penn State football recruiting adds two four-stars in one week

On Tuesday, Franklin’s Nittany Lions received some massive news: four-star linebacker Kari Jackson from West Bloomfield, MI, committed to Penn State. This was a notable move for Penn State football recruiting — the Lions are known as ‘LBU’ for a reason, and Jackson could be the next great linebacker to wear the Blue and White.

After Jackson’s commitment came more good news for Penn State football recruiting, especially Many Diaz’s defense. On Friday, a four-star in-state defensive back announced that he too will be heading to State College for his collegiate football career. Kenneth Woseley from Philadelphia, PA, announced his commitment to Franklin’s staff, making him the fourth commit in Penn State’s newest class.

What do the Nittany Lions have in 2024?

Penn State football recruiting has been doing well in this cycle — the Lions currently have four commits, all of which are four-star recruits. Additionally, three of Penn State’s four commits are in-state prospects, once again proving that the best players in PA stay in PA and play for the Penn State Nittany Lions.

The 2024 recruiting cycle is young, though Penn State’s future is already looking bright. The Lions’ class ranks No. 15 nationally according to the Rivals Network — Penn State’s 15th-ranked class is the third best in the Big Ten behind Michigan (12) and Ohio State (14).
