2024 Pitt DL Commit Jahsear Whittington Taking Visit to Penn State

Published

on

The recruiting process features a lot of stops along the road, and that’s ringing truer these days than any other. But it doesn’t mean it’s the end of the world either.

Jahsear Whittington — a 2024 four-star defensive line commit from Imhotep Charter in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania — made a trip to Rutgers recently and PSN has learned he’ll be headed to Penn State this weekend.

He was scheduled to visit Penn State for the White Out game last season, but he did not make the trip. And as was the case with Rutgers, it’s likely Whittington is visiting with his local teammates.

Whittington posted earlier this week on Twitter that while he’s going through the process, he knows where home is.

Whittington, who committed to Pitt way back in April, serving as the first verbal commitment in the class of 2024, has very vocally expressed his excitement about eventually arriving at Pitt.

He’s taken an active role in serving as a lead recruiter for Pitt’s class of 2024.

Whittington has made a handful of visits to Pittsburgh since his very first back in April — just before his commitment. He made it out for a camp in June, and he attended both the West Virginia and Virginia Tech games in the fall.

PSN last caught up with Whittington after the PIAA Class-5A championship, a hard-fought loss for Whittington and Imhotep, and he expressed his desire to improve this offseason.

“I get more time to prep before I get to Pitt,” Whittington said. “I’ve gotta stay strong, just worry about the off-season, just working to perfect my craft and be better… going forward, just focus on school and getting better over the off-season.”

Whittington is coming off a strong junior season in which he recorded over 40 tackles, 20 tackles for loss, 10 sacks, recovered three fumbles and earned second-consecutive All-State honors.

The 6-foot-2, 255-pound defensive lineman is the prototypical “undersized” dynamo. He’s already formed a strong bond with defensive line coach Charlie Partridge, too.

Pitt has a while to go before he’s able to sign, but there’s a strong relationship already between Whittington and Pitt — and the fans.

Whittington and four-star wide receiver DayDay Farmer (Cocoa, Florida) have provided a very strong foundation for Pitt’s class of 2024.

If he wants to come to the team that ranks #1 every year in sacks, he knows where to come! Plus Aaron Donald as an on-site mentor / tutor.
H2P!!!

The equalizer. No matter how good the PSU team is that will always be in their past. That is his kind of flip. He would be there to watch if he could and be on the clean up crew.

Once again Ed, it’s sarcasm that flew right over your tiny brained head. Thanks for always posting responses and following me, you truly are my number one fan! When I repeat as poster of the year next year you can present my award to me.
