Four-Star Offensive Tackle Anthony Whigan Commits To Penn State

Anthony Whigan, a four-star offensive tackle from Lackawanna College, committed to Penn State on Tuesday morning.

Whigan is ranked as the nation’s seventh-best junior college prospect, according to 247Sports. He took official visits to South Carolina and Louisville in early June, but a trip to Penn State’s annual Lasch Bash in late July sealed the deal for Whigan.

Whigan is teammates at Lackawanna with three-star safety Jaquan Brisker, who committed to the Nittany Lions on May 18. Paris Palmer, a class of 2015 offensive tackle signee, also attended the Scranton college known for producing quality Division I talent.

The 6-foot-5, 290-pound Whigan played his high school football at Great Mills in Maryland, where he graduated in 2017 before taking the JUCO route. He’ll have three years to play two seasons once he arrives in State College prior to the 2019 campaign.

Whigan racked up additional scholarship offers from Oklahoma, Nebraska, Ole Miss, and Arkansas, among others. Offensive line coach Matt Limegrover and tight ends coach Tyler Bowen are listed as his primary recruiters of record.

Whigan is the fourth offensive line commitment of Penn State’s 2019 recruiting class, joining Caedan Wallace, Saleem Wormley, and fellow tackle Zachary Franks. You can check out Whigan’s Hudl highlight reel right here.
