Penn State Adds Commitment From 2023 4-Star Edge Rusher Joseph Mupoyi

Penn State now has a trio of pass rushers in its class of 2023.

Four-star edge rusher/outside linebackers Ta’Mere Robinson (Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania) and Jameial Lyons (Philadelphia, Pennsylvania) committed to Penn State earlier this year, and there’s now a third in Joseph Mupoyi.

Mupoyi, a 6-foot-5, 230-pound edge rusher from St. Thomas More in Oakdale, Connecticut, committed to Penn State Monday over offers from Auburn, Boston College, Maryland, Miami, Michigan, Ole Miss, Rutgers, Virginia, West Virginia and Utah.

Mupoyi made an official visit to State College over the weekend, his second official visit following a trip to Ann Arbor over the summer, and it was enough of a success to secure his verbal commitment. He also visited Happy Valley for PSU’s Oct. 22 game against Minnesota this season.

Mupoyi plays alongside fellow Penn State commit Zion Tracy in St. Thomas More’s defense, following his junior season where he played at Archbishop Carroll in Washington D.C. alongside top 2023 recruit Nycholes Harbor.

With National Signing Day just under two weeks away, Mupoyi is a big addition to a class that currently sits at No. 13 in college football.

247Sports rates Mupoyi as the 520th-ranked recruit in the class (45th-ranked edge rusher and fourth-ranked recruit from Connecticut) while Rivals rates him as the 29th-ranked weakside defensive end and third-ranked recruit from Connecticut.

On3 rates him as the 389th-ranked recruit in the class (40th-ranked edge rusher and second-ranked recruit from Connecticut).

Penn State’s class of 2023 is rounding into shape as NSD approaches, but there are still likely a few high school commits that will be added down the line.
