Three-Star Offensive Tackle Will Fries Commits To Penn State
Penn State’s offensive line struggled mightily last season, but it’s not so quietly building a stellar front five for the immediate future. 2016 prospect Will Fries, a three-star offensive tackle from Cranford High School in Cranford, New Jersey, committed to Penn State Tuesday night, as first reported by 247Sports.

Fries weighed offers from a host of Big Ten and regional rivals including Maryland, Wisconsin, and Michigan. The Lions also won out over home state Rutgers, and instate foe Pitt. Ricky Rahne and Herb Hand handled the majority of the recruiting effort, per 247.
Fries is a physical force, clocking in at 6-foot-6 and weighing 270 pounds — and he’s only 17-years-old. 247 ranks him as the 10th-best New Jersey product, the 40th-best offensive lineman, and the 402nd-best recruit in the county.
Fries’ commitment comes hardly a week after Michael Menet, Pennsylvania’s highest-ranked recruit and star offensive lineman, also pledged he’d play at Penn State. Along with Alex Gellerstedt, also a three-star o-lineman, Penn State’s 2016 front five is loaded. That recruiting class is now ranked No. 13 in the county, and third in the Big Ten.
