Is Penn State poised to secure a significant commitment from a highly sought-after four-star defensive lineman hailing from Maryland?

While Penn State’s history of success below the Mason-Dixon Line and with defensive linemen suggests it’s a possibility, landing Trent Wilson’s commitment might still be considered a challenge.

Wilson, a standout from Upper Marlboro, MD, has narrowed down his list of preferred schools to four, with Penn State emerging as a contender in the final stages. Competing against heavyweights like Ohio State, Oklahoma, and Texas A&M, Penn State has secured official visits from Wilson, with his visit scheduled for June 7 following trips to Ohio State and preceding his visit to Oklahoma; Texas A&M is next on June 21.

Penn State has been proactive in hosting Wilson, with more visits anticipated. Alongside his upcoming official visit in June, Wilson is expected to attend Penn State’s spring Blue-White Game on April 13.

Although there are no definitive predictions from 247Sports, the On3 recruiting prediction machine currently favors Oklahoma with an 86.7% chance of securing Wilson, with recent predictions surfacing this week, albeit with moderate confidence levels.

As for Wilson’s decision timeline, it seems likely to occur by the end of June or possibly in July, considering the scheduled official visits. The outcome of this recruiting battle will be determined by how effectively Penn State can sway Wilson in the final stages.

In terms of overall recruiting, the Nittany Lions’ Class of 2025 currently stands fifth nationally and second in the Big Ten, trailing Ohio State, according to the latest 247Sports composite team rankings.
