Jayden Bonsu, a Class of 2023 four-star safety out of St. Peter’s Prep in Jersey City, New Jersey, announced via Twitter his top five schools Saturday, and Penn State has made the cut.

Penn State is in the hunt along with Alabama, Miami, Michigan State and Ohio State. The 6-foot-2, 205-pound safety is the No. 3 recruit in New Jersey, the No. 36 safety in the country and the No. 272 overall recruit in the Class of 2023.

Bonsu started his high school career at Hillside High School but transferred to St. Peter’s Prep before his junior season. He recorded 62 tackles (7.5 for loss), 2.5 sacks and two interceptions in 2021.

Scouts like Bonsu’s is versatility.

He can play physically in the box, at deep safety and in the slot. Bonsu is a sure tackler, showing technique by driving back ball carriers. He has shown an understanding of the route tree, which helps him anticipate receivers’ tendencies in coverage.

Bonau spoke to 247Sports’ Recruiting Analyst  Brian Dohn about his unofficial visit to Penn State that he took back in January.

“The coaches take care of their players and take education very seriously, which is big for me,” he said.

It’s not yet certain when Bonsu will take his official visit but he’s expected to announce his decision Aug. 20.

If Bonsu commits to Penn State, he’ll join Conrad Hussey, DaKaari Nelson and Lamont Payne as defensive backs in the 2023 class.
