Three-Star Defensive End Zuriah Fisher Commits To Penn State

James Franklin added the seventh defensive lineman to his recruiting class of 2020 with Zuriah Fisher’s commitment Monday afternoon.

Fisher committed to Penn State over Michigan State, Kentucky, and Nebraska, among others. He’s ranked as the 13th-best recruit in Pennsylvania and the 51st-best weak-side defensive end in the country, according to

Despite being listed as a defensive end, Fisher also plays linebacker for Aliquippa High School. The 6’3″, 240-pound defender received plenty of offers from powerhouse programs across the country, but chose to stay home and play for the Nittany Lions.

Fisher adds plenty of depth to an already talented Penn State defensive line. He is also joining a Nittany Lion recruiting class that already has four four-star recruits on the defensive side of the ball.

The Pennsylvania native will be a valuable addition to Sean Spencer’s “Wild Dogs” unit, and may even add some value to the linebacker position.
