One of Penn State’s goals for this upcoming recruiting class is to improve both the depth and talent on their offensive line.
Despite it only being January, the Nittany Lions have done a tremendous job early for their Class of 2023. Of their seven early commitments, PSU has received verbals from three offensive lineman: 3-star Anthony Donkoh, 3-star Joshua Miller and 4-star Alex Birchmeier.
Although they’ve already locked up three, James Franklin and his staff aren’t done pursuing big men.
One of the players still on their radar is 4-star offensive guard Antonio Tripp Jr. from McDonogh High School in Owings Mill, Maryland. Tripp is no stranger to the Penn State program as he’s already made three unofficial visits to State College and is viewed by some as a Penn State lean.
This weekend, Tripp cut down his list of offers and released a Top Nine: Penn State, Virginia Tech, Maryland, West Virginia, Michigan, Louisville, Miami, South Carolina and Michigan State.
Tripp’s main recruiter at Penn State has been his potential future position coach- Phil Trautwein.
