Penn State Five-Star OL Commit Alex Birchmeier Tweets That Recruitment is ‘107% Shutdown’

Alex Birchmeier still has his junior year of high school to complete and then his senior football season after that.

But it seems pretty clear that he won’t change his mind about where he wants to play in college.

The 6-foot-6, 275-pound five-star offensive line prospect out of Broad Run high school in Ashburn, Virginia, committed to Penn State this past July and has since grown a reputation as the leader of James Franklin’s 2023 class.

Last night, Birchmeier reaffirmed his status by tweeting that his “recruitment is 107% shutdown”– an apparent reference to Beaver Stadium’s seating capacity.

Birchmeier was the first player from the 2023 class to commit to Penn State. Since then, six have followed, with two of them– Joshua Miller and Anthony Donkoh– being offensive linemen. Barring a surprise, Birchmeier will be the first five-star OL prospect to ever sign with Penn State according to 247Sports, and Nittany Lion fans hope that this is a sign of better days ahead, as the offensive line was oft-chastised in 2021.
