Penn State Continues Recruiting Roll in Western Pennsylvania



Penn State is actively bolstering its 2025 recruiting class by targeting talents from western Pennsylvania. The most recent addition is 4-star linebacker Dayshaun Burnett, who committed to the Penn State football program on Wednesday. Hailing from Pittsburgh’s Imani Christian Academy, Burnett follows in the footsteps of another 4-star linebacker, Alex Tatsch from Greater Latrobe, who committed to the Nittany Lions just last Sunday.

Ranked as the eighth-best player in Pennsylvania according to the 4231Sports Composite, Burnett had an impressive list of contenders before choosing Penn State. His final choices included Pitt, West Virginia, Rutgers, and Kentucky, and he also had offers from prominent programs like Michigan, Michigan State, and Wisconsin.

Burnett, standing at 6-2 and weighing 220 pounds, adds to Penn State’s successful recruitment efforts in western Pennsylvania for the 2025 class. The Nittany Lions have secured commitments from five players in the region, constituting half of their class, and all these recruits rank among the state’s top 20 prospects.

Penn State head coach James Franklin, emphasizing the program’s appeal, reiterated his belief during the December Signing Day that the best regional talents should choose Penn State. Franklin emphasized the combination of academic excellence, football competitiveness, and the ability to compete at the highest level as the factors making Penn State the premier choice in the region.

As of now, Penn State’s 2025 recruiting class holds the sixth national ranking and is positioned as the second-best in the Big Ten according to the 4231Sports Composite’s early list.
