The Penn State football program received a pleasant surprise on Tuesday night with a huge addition to their Class of 2025.

Highly ranked 4-star defensive tackle Randy Adirika announced his commitment to Penn State, selecting the Nittany Lions over hometown Miami and USC.

This is a huge recruiting win for Penn State football as they were able to add a highly ranked defensive tackle to their already impressive Class of 2025. He also becomes the second 4-star recruit from Miami to commit to Penn State, joining quarterback Bekkem Kritza, who gave a verbal back in November.

How big of a get was Adirika?

Going by the player rankings on, Adirika becomes the 3rd highest ranked player in the Nittany Lions recruiting class.


  1. 4-star cornerback Daryus Dixson (Santa Ana, California) No. 53 overall.

  2. 4-star running back Jabree Coleman (Philadelphia, Pennsylvania) No. 125 overall.

  3. 4-star defensive tackle Randy Adirika (Miami, Florida) No. 132 overall.

  4. 4-star cornerback Jahmir Joseph (Montvale, New Jersey) No. 138 overall.

  5. 4-star linebacker Alex Tatsch (Latrobe, Pennsylvania) No. 190 overall.

That’s the individual ranking, here’s where Penn State now stands in the Rivals 2025 Team Recruiting Ranking. Despite the addition, Penn State remains in the No. 7 spot, which is obviously still very impressive.


  1. Ohio State (3135 points)
  2. Alabama (2490 points)
  3. Notre Dame (2378 points)
  4. Georgia (2334 points)
  5. Oklahoma (2312 points)
