Penn State Offer ‘Big’ for 2022 Georgia 3-Star Safety Mumu Bin-Wahad

Prior to his most recent offer, Junior Mumu Bin-Wahad was happy with the direction his recruitment was going and the fact that he’d received close to thirty offers.

Wahad (5-foot-11, 180 pounds) is a 3-star safety from Grayson High School in Loganville, Georgia that has picked up offers from schools like Michigan State, Cincinnati, Arizona State, Arkansas, Boston College, Georgia Tech, Louisville, Minnesota, Mississippi State, South Carolina, Syracuse, TCU, Virginia, Wake Forest and West Virginia.

Wahad admits though that things changed on Wednesday, following a call from Terry Smith, who let him know that he’d earned an offer from Penn State.

“Coach Terry offered me and told me that he really liked my game and watched my film so many times that he couldn’t remember. He said that he was impressed with my ball skills and playmaking ability and told me that I’m the type of player that he wants at Penn State,” said Wahad. “That means a lot because that’s a school that I really like growing up. I knew that it was going to happen. I’ve been talking to Coach Smith a good amount before he offered but it was still good to officially receive it.”

“This offer meant a lot and carried a bit more meaning, I’m not going to lie, it’s big. Like I said, growing up watching Penn State and actually Marcus Allen (former Penn State safety) was one of my favorite players growing up. This was exciting and like a dream turned into reality for me. The NFL pedigree that Penn State provides is something that stands out about them. I want to play in the league one day and the pedigree that have of constantly having guys drafted and putting them into the NFL really stands out to me.”

During his junior season, Wahad collected 24 tackles, three interceptions, eight pass break-ups, a forced fumble, two tackles for loss and believes his ball skills are gathering him all this Power Five interest.

“I get complimented a lot on my instincts and my ball skills,” said Wahad. “I believe I have the ability to change the game on any play when given the opportunity.”

Wahad gave an early commitment to Cincinnati back in October but de-committed in early January following the departure of defensive coordinator Marcus Freeman, who left to take the same position at Notre Dame.

The Georgia native also told NSN that he plans on taking a virtual visit soon with Penn State and once visits open back up, he plans on making an official visit to State College.
