It's been a long time since Penn State landed its twelfth verbal commitment back in mid August. This weekend Penn State got a major boost when Stefen Wisniewski called Tom Bradley to inform him of his decision to play football for the Nittany Lions.
Wisniewski is a four start prospect on the offensive line who many people consider to be the best player available in the state of Pennsylvania this year. The Central Catholic High (Pittsburgh) standout is a three year starter that was invited to play in high school footballs most prestigious honor, the US Army All American Game.
The 6'4" 275 lb lineman is projected to play guard or center on the college level even though he plays tackle in high school. He comes from an excellent family lineage of linemen as his father played on the defensive line for Penn State from 1978-82 and his uncle is Steve Wisniewski who was a guard for the Nittany Lions from 1985-88 and went on to have a 12 year career with the LA/Oakland Raiders going to 8 probowls. He was also named to the NFL All-Decade Team for the 1990's.
Wiz joins a host of recruits the Lions have picked up to bolster the offensive line with this class which includes Quinn Barham, Josh Marks, and J.B. Walton. Stefen passed on offers from Boston College, Michigan, North Carolina, Northwestern, and Pitt among others.
