Penn State Priority Recruit Josiah Trotter Announcing Decision Soon

Josiah Trotter, a four-star recruit out of Philadelphia, Pa will announce his commitment on his birthday April 15, and he is a major target of the Penn State staff.

The 6-2, 240-pounder is the son of two-time All-Pro and four-time Pro Bowler Jerimiah Trotter. 

According to, he is the No. 7 recruit in Pennsylvania, the No. 23 linebacker, and the No. 275 recruit in the Class of 2023. He has had offers from Clemson, South Carolina, West Virginia, and Virginia Tech that were previously on his top five list.

In 2021, Trotter recorded 114 tackles, two forced fumbles, nine tackles for loss, six pass breakups, and recovered two fumbles. His efforts were awarded by being named the PhillyVoice Player of the Year. 

Trotter was one of the key reasons that St. Joseph’s Prep High School win its third consecutive PIAA 6A state championship in 2021.

Should he sign, Trotter would be the first linebacker commit in the Class of 2023 and the eighth commit from this recruiting class.
