4-Star Philly LB Semaj Bridgeman Names Penn State in His Top Eight

Semaj Bridgeman, a 2023 four-star recruit out of Imhotep Institute in Philadelphia, has narrowed his choice down to eight schools, and Penn State has made his wish list. The other seven schools on his list are Jackson State, Rutgers, South Carolina, West Virginia, Georgia, Florida, and Oregon.

Bridgeman is a 6-2, 220-pound linebacker and tight end who played at Bishop McDevitt High School his first two years of high school, then transferred to Archbishop Wood for last season after Bishop McDevitt closed its doors before last season. Now, Bridgeman will be playing for Imhotep, who played in the Pennsylvania 5A State championship game last season.

According to 247Sports.com, Bridgman is the No. 5 ranked player in Pennsylvania, the No. 19 linebacker, and the No. 228 ranked player nationally. Scouts love his ability to run sideline to sideline and his hitting ability. Scouts also think that he is one of the most physically impressive linebackers that has played in PA over the past few years.

If Bridgeman were to come to Penn State, he would be the first linebacker commit for the Nittany Lions for the Class of 2023 and ninth overall. On3.com believes his choice is down to Penn State or Rutgers, while Rivals.com Fan Future Cast poll predicts Penn State as the favorite to get the talented linebacker.
