On Friday, four-star cornerback, Kenneth Woseley announced that he’d being staying in-state and committing to the Penn State Nittany Lions. He chose Penn State over Rutgers, Michigan, Texas A&M and more.

Woseley is a 5-foot-11, 170-pound cornerback from Imhotep Charter High School in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. According to 247sports, he is ranked as the No. 33 cornerback in the country, the No. 9 recruit in Pennsylvania, and the No. 366 overall recruit in the Class of 2024.

Being from Pennsylvania, the decision to stay home felt relatively easy to Woseley. But the fact that he made the decision is still of overwhelming joy to him.

“It feels great, just being committed to such a good program, power five program,” Woseley said. “Coming where I come from, it feels great.”

What set Penn State apart for Woseley was just about everything the program and the school had to offer. When it came to defensive schemes, competition level, NIL, academics and more, the decision to commit to Penn State was almost a no-brainer for Woseley.

“When I went up there for my last visit on Junior Day, they really kind of sat and talked with me, they showed me how I fit in their program,” Woseley said. “Coach Manny’s [Diaz] defense, I love the defense. They play just exactly how we play at Imhotep, and I didn’t really see that in any other school.”

According to his fellow Penn State commits, Woseley’s decision to commit to the Nittany Lions was a much anticipated decision. Woseley’s relationship with four-star offensive lineman and Penn State commit, Cooper Cousins, goes back to before Cousins was committed, and he’s been verbaled to the Nittany Lions for over a year.

“That’s the leader of our class,” Woseley said. “We’ve been talking for a long time. Way before he made his decision, we’ve been connected. When he made his decision, he was straight on me trying to get me to commit right then and there, I’m like ‘no I can’t do it, it’s too early.’ But Coop, that’s my guy.”

Woseley’s been welcomed into Penn State’s 2024 class with open arms, and he’s excited to get to work in State College once his senior season comes to an end. But not only that now he’s committed, but the recruiting process going the way it did for him in general, is something that hasn’t sunken in yet.

“The process felt surreal to me, it all happened so quick,” Woseley said. “Just going about the process, it’s just like ‘wow I’m really a four-star, I’m receiving all these offers.’ Now just being committed to Penn State, it still doesn’t feel real.”
