Four-Star OT Nana Asiedu Commits To Penn State

Penn State kicked off its Blue-White festivities with a major commitment from four-star Stafford, Va., offensive tackle Nana Asiedu.

Asiedu’s verbal gives the Nittany Lions 12 commits in their 2018 recruiting class, which currently ranks No. 2 in the nation. He’s the lone offensive lineman committed as three-star Chris Bleich reopened his recruitment on Friday. Asiedu is considered the seventh-ranked tackle in America and the third-best prospect from Virginia, according to 247Sports. He joins five-star all-purpose back Ricky Slade as the second Virginian pledged to the Nittany Lions this cycle.

The 6-foot-6, 265-pound Asiedu visited for Penn State’s Junior Day back in February, but made up his mind a few hours before kickoff of the team’s spring game. Asiedu held offers from a host of college football powers like Clemson, Georgia, and Texas, among others, before settling on State College as his future home. His primary recruiter of record was running backs coach Charles Huff.
