4-Star LB Tony Rojas Pushes Back Commitment Date

Tony Rojas, a four-star Class of 2023 linebacker from Fairfax High School in Virginia who’s a Penn State target, announced via Twitter Thursday afternoon that he’s pushing his commitment date back from July 5 to July 14. 

Penn State made Rojas’ final four, along with Clemson, Georgia and Miami. Miami appears to be out of the hunt after Rojas, who withdrew his official visit that was scheduled for the weekend of Jule 10. Rojas went on an official visit to Penn State the weekend of June 17 and set his initial commitment date soon after.

Rojas and fellow linebacker Ta’Mere Robinson, a western Pennsylvania product from Brashear High School in Pittsburgh, both set their commitment dates a little more than 24 hours apart. Robinson is scheduled to commit July 15.

Both linebackers also have multiple 247 sports crystal ball projections to Penn State, with Rojas having four predictions and Robinson three. 

If Rojas commits to Penn State, he’d be the fourth player from Virginia to do so, with coach James Franklin’s top commit, five-star OL Alex Birchmeier (Broad Run High School), leading the pack. 

Penn State doesn’t yet have a linebacker committed to its 2023 class, and many are expecting Rojas and Ta’Mere Robinson to be the first two LBs to pledge to “Linebacker U” in this recruiting cycle. 

Rojas’ reasoning for pushing back his commitment date is not year clear. What’s more clear is that, if Rojas picks Penn State, Franklin, his staff and Penn State fans won’t care what day it comes.
