Four-Star Linebacker Abdul Carter Commits To Penn State Football

Penn State football’s Class of 2022 isn’t slowing down, folks.

Four-star linebacker Abdul Carter announced via Twitter Saturday night that he’s committing to James Franklin’s program over South Carolina and LSU, among others.

He’s the second prospect to join the 2022 class on Saturday, joining three-star safety Kevin Winston Jr.

Carter hails from Glenside, Pennsylvania, and he plays his high school ball at La Salle College High School. According to 247Sports, the 6’4″, 235-pound linebacker is the ninth-best prospect in his home state, as well as the No. 36 linebacker prospect in his class.

He’s now the 24th player to join the Nittany Lions’ No. 2-nationally ranked 2022 class. Additionally, he’s the 14th four-star prospect to commit to the program thus far this cycle.

With Carter’s commitment, Penn State currently has two linebackers in its Class of 2022. Three-star prospect Keon Wylie became the first linebacker to join the class earlier this month.
