Is Penn State starting an Imhotep Charter pipeline?
Within a little more than 24 hours, two players from the Philadelphia powerhouse have put Penn State in their top five.
On Friday night, four-star ‘24 defensive back Kenneth Woseley Jr. announced that Penn State was in his top four. The next night, three-star offensive lineman Zafir Stewart reveled his top three; Nebraska, Rutgers and Penn State.

Stewart is 6-foot-5 and 320 pounds. Penn State offered him in October. He’s also had offers from Boston College, Cincinnati, Maryland, Ole Miss, Pitt, Toledo and West Virginia.
Earlier this month, Stewart talked with 247Sports about his experience with Penn State.
“What I think about Penn State overall is they’re an amazing school,” Stewart said, “football- and academic-wise. “They have a family bond with all their players and it’s something amazing to see. They have a winning mentality and are very aggressive when it comes to winning.”
Penn State won a lot this past season, going 11-2 and ending the year by beating Utah in the Rose Bowl. A big reason for Penn State success was LB Abdul Carter, who, like Stewart and Woseley, comes from the Philly area. Carter played at LaSalle College High School, which is roughly an hour from Philadelphia, and was one of the top true freshmen in college football last season, being named a semi finalist for the Shaun Alexander Award received by the nation’s top newcomer.
Penn State has three offensive linemen signed to its ‘23 class; four-stars J’Ven Williams (Wyomissing, Pennsylvania), Alex Birchmeier (Ashburn, Virginia) and Anthony Donkoh (Aldie) are all signed and on campus as early enrollees.
