Much of the focus on Penn State’s efforts in the Class of 2023 has focused on the offensive side of the football, but the future of the defensive line continues to be a key area the Nittany Lions are concentrating on as well. Tyriq Blanding will be a part of those future plans in the trenches after committing to the program in mid-June.
Blanding committed to Penn State one week before he was scheduled to make an official visit to Michigan. Considered one of the top recruits in the state of New York, Blanding looks to follow in the same path that has led to a number of Penn State defensive linemen being drafted by NFL franchises. Penn State’s knack for developing defensive linemen could pay off in a big way with Blanding.
Here is everything you need to know about Blanding in Penn State’s Class of 2023.
