Stanford OL Kevin Reihner Transfers to Penn State

It’s National Signing Day, but last night, James Franklin and Co. picked up a new Penn State player without a letter of intent.

Kevin Reihner, a graduate student, will transfer from Stanford to play immediately for Penn State in 2015. Reihner is a Pennsylvania man who was an All-State player at Scranton Prep. The 6-foot-4, 295-pound Reihner is continuing a family tradition at Penn State — his father George was a lineman here from 1974-77 before playing six years with the Houston Oilers, and his uncle John was a Penn State kicker from 1972-75.

He committed to Stanford as a three-star recruit, the 15th-ranked offensive lineman in the Class of 2011. At Stanford, he appeared in 10 career games but was never much of a difference-maker, only playing in six games during his senior season. Because he’s a graduate, he doesn’t have to sit out a season and will provide some immediate depth to Penn State’s much-maligned offensive line, which will be without Donovan Smith and Miles Dieffenbach in 2015.

The only video of Reihner on Youtube is from his high school days, and it’s probably best not to embed that:

I recommend perusing his Twitter, which immediately enters the ranks of the best on football team (and it has some damn fine ones). Welcome to the family, Kevin!
