On Friday evening Penn State secured its third in-state commitment in the 2024 recruiting cycle when Kenneth Woseley a four-star defensive back out of Imhotep Institute in Philadelphia, committed to the school.
Woseley chose Penn State over Michigan, Nebraska, and Rutgers. Woseley (5-foot-11, 170-pounds) is the number eight player in Pennsylvania, the No. 31 cornerback nationally, and the No. 341 overall player in the country, according to 247Sports Composite rankings.
Woseley visited Penn State on Jan. 23 for its junior day after receiving an offer from him after attending a summer camp in June of 2021.
Woseley spoke about Penn State after his Junior day visit.
“I love Penn State. It’s not just from a football perspective, but everything Penn State can do for you outside of football.”
WHAT WOSELEY WOULD BRING TO PENN STATE
Woseley is a versatile cornerback that can play center field, boundary, and in the slot. He is an aggressive cornerback that’s willing to make tackles in the open field. Good at keeping contain and disrupting receivers out of their routes by playing with good leverage and footwork. He has played with several talented players, especially in the secondary at Imhotep, as he got on the field early for them. Penn State and cornerbacks coach Terry Smith is now gaining even more traction in recruitment with Joey Porter Jr. most likely becoming a first-round pick in April’s draft and if that happens, it would be the first time in program history that a defensive back was taken in the first round and Kalen King possibly not far behind him.
NSN’s MIKE FARRELL, THE ‘GODFATHER OF RECRUITING’S’, ANALYSIS OF WOSELEY
“Imhotep has been good to Penn State with a few key guys like (Shaka) Toney and (Keon) Wylie in the last many cycles and Woseley keeps it going. He’s thin and needs a lot of filling out, but he his long for a 5-11 corner and he has hops. He also fluid so that bodes well as he adds weight because he won’t lose that flexibility. Any win over Big Ten schools is a good one, and this is a nice get over Michigan, but also over Nebraska as Matt Rhule will try hard to hit his old stomping grounds in Philly. I have him as a top 300 four-star kid.
Woseley joins offensive tackle Cooper Cousins for McDowell High School in Erie and linebacker Anthony Speca from Central Catholic High school in Pittsburgh and Kari Jackson from West Bloomfield High School in Michigan in Penn State’s 2024 recruiting class.
