2017 Offensive Guard Michael Miranda Makes The Call For Penn State
After months of being a Penn State lean, three-star offensive guard Michael Miranda (Stow, OH) officially joined the 2017 class, announcing his commitment to the Nittany Lions. Miranda displayed an impressive offer sheet, choosing Penn State over Missouri, Northwestern, Nebraska, and Pittsburgh, among others.
Miranda’s an old school offensive lineman that will remind Penn State fans of former All-American center A.Q. Shipley. He won’t surprise anybody with his quickness or athleticism, but you’d be hard pressed to find a tougher lineman in the nation. Miranda’s a terror in the run game, has an extremely strong lower base, and plays with a mean streak. There are concerns about his lack of length — he has a short wingspan — which will keep him on the interior and limits his upside, but Miranda seems like another solid addition along the offensive line.
Miranda joins Pittsburgh product C.J. Thorpe along with big man Robert Martin as the third offensive lineman in the 2017 class, but don’t expect the Nittany Lions to stop there. Even after taking four lineman in 2016, James Franklin and company appear to be gearing up for another three or four man offensive line class in 2017.
