Three-Star Wide Receiver Ejani Shakir Commits To Penn State Football

James Franklin is rolling on the recruiting trail, folks.

Three-star wideout Ejani Shakir announced Wednesday night that he’s committing to Penn State over West Virginia and Boston College, among others. He’s the first wide receiver to join the Nittany Lions’ Class of 2023.

Shakir, a native of Atco, New Jersey, plays his high school ball at Pennsauken. The 6’0″, 175-pound wideout is ranked as the third-best player in his home state and is the No. 27-ranked wide receiver in the 2023 class, according to 247Sports.

At Pennsauken High School, he plays both wide receiver and defensive back. Additionally, Shakir competes in track and field, as noted by 247Sports.

He joins Penn State’s Class of 2023 that is now ranked No. 3 in the nation after his commitment. The Nittany Lions boast the best class in the Big Ten, which is just ahead of Ohio State. With Shakir’s commitment, 12 players have now verbally committed to the Nittany Lions’ 2023 class.
