Effner chose the Nittany Lions ahead of other offers from Maryland and Minnesota. The 6’5″, 275-pound prospect is rated the 71st-best tackle in the nation, according to 247 sports.
Offensive line coach Matthew Limegrover tweeted following the original reports of Effner’s commitment that he’s excited to add another quality player to his group.
