Penn State received its second Class of 2023 commitment in as many days late Tuesday morning when defensive end Mason Robinson committed a day after decommitting from Northwestern.

Robinson (6-foot-4, 235 pounds) committed to Northwestern in late May but de-committed Monday following his official visit to Penn State this past weekend, and now has joined the 2023 Class.

After his de-commitment, Penn State became the favorite to land Robinson, and he hosted coaches for an in-home visit Monday night.

Late Tuesday morning, it became official that Penn State is where Robinson intends to play college football. A day before Robinson committed, Penn State’s Class of 2023 defensive line received a boost when Joseph Mupoyi (St. Thomas More) joined the class. Now, Penn State has 21 commitments for its 2023 Class and the third EDGE prospect, joining Mupoyi and Jameial Lyons (Roman Catholic), who committed in April.

Robinson would also be joining quite a pipeline of standouts from his his high school, the McDonogh School in Owings Mills, Maryland. Also from the McDonogh School are current Penn State defenders Dani Dennis-Sutton, Curtis Jacobs, Dvon Ellies and PJ Mustipher. Robinson has a relationship with all four of those players. Although Mustipher will be done with his college football career by the time Robinson starts it, Dennis-Sutton, Jacobs and Ellies still have college eligibility. Before making his commitment official, Robinson spoke with 247Sports about Penn State and coordinator Manny Diaz’s defense.

“They let the d-line play really vertical and let them attack,” Robinson said. That is the one thing that I loved. Now you allow the linebackers to do their job, play hard, play fast, and you play the run on the way to the quarterback. That was one of the cool things that they have going on with their defense.”

Early signing day is scheduled for Wednesday, Dec. 21.
