Offensive lineman Olumuyiwa Fashanu will return to Penn State for the 2023 season, he announced on Twitter.

Fashanu was widely regarded as one of the top offensive line prospects for the 2023 NFL Draft and a potential top-10 pick.

"There is still more that I want to achieve personally and collectively as a program," Fashanu stated in his announcement.

The 6-foot-6, 308-pound redshirt sophomore climbed many evaluators' draft boards thanks in large part to his pass protection abilities. He allowed zero sacks and six hurries on 299 pass-blocking snaps this season, according to PFF.

Fashanu is just 19 years old and only became a full-time starter this year. He's helped the Nittany Lions to a 10-2 record and the third-ranked total offense in the Big Ten.
