The 6-foot-2, 215 pound Wangler comes in as a two star recruit on Rivals and a three star recruit on both Scout and 24/7 with offers from schools such as Michigan State and Cincinnati. He may not be as highly rated as others, but he did rack up 86 tackles for De La Salle High School in Warren, Michigan as a junior. Wangler is the second linebacker commit for the 2014 class alongside Troy Reeder.
Wangler will be filling a major position of need for the Nittany Lions, with only six linebackers projected to be on scholarship in the 2014-15 season, not counting Zayd Issah, whose status is still up in the air.
As mentioned earlier, Wangler is the second recruit to commit to Penn State today, as the team picked up a commitment from Maryland safety Marcus Allen earlier in the day.
Wangler is Penn State’s ninth verbal commit for 2014 and fourth on the defensive side of the ball.
