Zamire Cottrell, a defensive lineman in the Class of 2023, announced his verbal commitment to Penn State football via his Twitter account Friday evening.

Cottrell will join the team as a preferred walk-on after earning the offer early in January. His Twitter account also indicates he visited Happy Valley on January 21 and for Penn State’s game against Michigan State on November 26, 2022.

“After deep thought and consideration I’m playing this game because of my love for competition and the doors it can open for me and my family,” Cottrell wrote. “This is why I’ve decided to accept the opportunity to play at Penn State University!”

Cottrell played at Conwell Egan Catholic High School as a defensive end and a defensive tackle, according to his Twitter account. According to 247Sports, Temple and Saint Francis (PA) are the only schools that gave him offers.
