Penn State Adds Three-Star OT Bryce Effner To 2018 Class

James Franklin added (another!) offensive tackle to Penn State’s 2018 recruiting class with the addition of three-star prospect Bryce Effner out of Aurora, IL.

Effner joins Nana Asiedu and Antwan Reed — who both committed during Blue-White — after the decommitment of four-star OT Chris Bleich.

Effner chose the Nittany Lions ahead of other offers from Maryland and Minnesota. The 6’5″, 275-pound prospect is rated the 71st-best tackle in the nation, according to 247 sports.

Offensive line coach Matthew Limegrover tweeted following the original reports of Effner’s commitment that he’s excited to add another quality player to his group.

The addition is the 13th commitment to the 2018 recruiting class — which is now ranked third in the nation.
