A Friday that started off with some good news for PSU on the recruiting front continues to get better, as Ryan Snyder again broke the news of another Nittany Lions Commitment, this time from Warren, Michigan LB Jared Wangler.

Jared picked up his offer from Penn State during a visit to campus back in early April, and was back in Happy Valley today when he gave Bill O’Brien his verbal commitment. At the time, PSU was the first major conference program to offer among a number of MAC schools. However, Michigan State offered the (somewhat) local prospect last week.
247 gives Wangler 3 stars, and the 14th best player in the state of Michigan. They also have him ranked as a safety, but PSU projects the 6’1″, 218 lb. Wangler as a linebacker.
Jared joins Delaware’s Troy Reeder as the 2nd linebacker in the class. Barring an unforeseen change, those two will complete the 2014 linebacker class. After the recent run on skill, it’s good to see PSU address the depth at linebacker, especially in light of the uncertainty around 2013 recruit Zayd Issah following his legal issues.
Here’s Jared’s film:
Welcome to Penn State, Jared!
