Earlier this month, the Penn State Nittany Lions put out a key offer in the 2023 recruiting cycle. New Head Coach Micah Shrewsberry and his new staff decided to offer 2023 prospect Maki Johnson.

Johnson comes out of Scott Depot, West Virginia and is currently rated as a three-star prospect and the best player in the state by 247Sports. The recruiting site also lists him at 6-foot-3 and 180 pounds and identifies him as one of the rising players on the 2023 cycle. Along with Penn State, he also has offers from schools including Cincinnati, Kansas, Nebraska, Ohio State, and Xavier among others.
Penn State currently has no commitments in its 2023 recruiting class, which isn’t surprising given the timing of the recruiting cycle and the program’s recent coaching transition. But fans will hope Shrewsberry and staff can add to that haul with Johnson in the months to come. Of course, we will have to wait and see if that ends up happening as there’s still quite some time before Johnson has to make his decision.
