Penn State has received its second offensive lineman commit in as many days, its third in the past week and its fourth in the past 10 days in Eagan Boyer, a three-star from William Amos Hough High School in Cornelius, North Carolina.
Boyer tweeted the news early Tuesday afternoon.

Boyer is a 6-foot-8, 265-pounder who Penn State offered in January.
He also had offers from schools such as Auburn, Clemson, Duke, Florida, Georgia Tech, Kentucky, Louisville, Maryland, Michigan, Michigan State, North Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia Tech, Wake Forest, West Virginia and Wisconsin.
Besides his height and weight, Boyer has 34.5″ arms and an 80.5″ wingspan that should play well on the line.
Boyer told 247Sports that he was instantly taken with Penn State and the State College community.
“Ever since I got up there, I fell in love with the town,” he said. “Their coaching style is amazing. They push you as hard as they can. I know they are going to develop me the best that they can.
“Some colleges told me they would get me to 350 (pounds). They will get me to 315, which might be my body’s limit. And I will have an opportunity to play freshman year.”
Penn State offensive line coach Phil Trautwein has been on a recruiting rampage this cycle.
Five of Penn State’s 12 ’24 commits are now offensive linemen. To no surprise, Trautwein was a big draw for Boyer.
“One, his coaching style,” Boyer told 247. “He’s going to get what he wants out of his guys, and he’s going to make sure they are doing it to perfection. That’s one thing I want. Some coaches are lackadaisical, and they don’t get the most out of their guys. He’s getting the most out of his guys.
“I’d like to be a part of a program like that.”
