Three-star offensive tackle Bryce Effner committed to Penn State on Saturday afternoon, announcing via Twitter that he plans to take his talents to Happy Valley.
Effner — who stands at 6-foot-5 and 281 pounds, according to ESPN — chose the Nittany Lions over the likes of Kansas State, Minnesota and Syracuse. He is the third offensive linemen to commit since the Blue-White game.
“I couldn’t be more excited for what (is) to come and, with 100 percent certainty, I can say I have committed to play football and further my academics at Penn State!” he wrote on Twitter. “God bless and WE ARE!”
Effner, an Illinois native, was an all-conference selection last season and only started receiving scholarship offers in December. He earned his Penn State offer in late March.
Never miss a local story.
He is the 13th commit of the Class of 2018. According to 247’s recruiting rankings, the Nittany Lions’ class is now tops in the Big Ten and No. 3 nationally.
