Penn State’s 2022 recruiting class is already highly-ranked, hovering around the No. 5 mark over the last couple of months, but there’s still hope for a late boost before Early Signing Day in December.
One of those boosts may come in the form of 2022 four-star linebacker Wesley Bissainthe, who will be announcing his college decision in the coming days. And the Nittany Lions are a top contender, making his shortlist of finalists back in September.
Bissainthe’s decision will come Saturday, Dec. 4 at 5 p.m. on CBSSports, and he’ll choose from West Virginia, Florida State, Miami, Penn State and Florida.

With visits to all five schools in his Top 5, spending time in Happy Valley on June 11 for his official visit, Bissainthe has thoroughly scouted all of his finalists. However, 247Sports is split between Miami and Florida State for his decision, and Rivals also projects him to land with Miami.
247Sports rates Bissainthe as the 188th-ranked recruit in the class, checking in as the 15th-ranked linebacker and 23rd-ranked recruit from Florida. Rivals rates him as the 23rd-ranked linebacker and the 43rd-ranked recruit from Florida.
Coming off a successful season with Miami Central, racking up 36 tackles, 12 tackles for loss, three sacks, two forced fumbles and a recovery and two interceptions, Bissainthe is a versatile linebacker capable of playing all across the football field.
The Lions already have commitments from four-star linebacker Abdul Carter and three-star linebacker Keon Wylie in their 2022 class, and the addition of Bissainthe would be another big boost.
