Penn State has verbal commitments from three offensive linemen in its 2016 recruiting class, perhaps none as gifted as Exeter High School offensive tackle Michal Menet. Expert opinion might vary on his future position for the Nittany Lions, but a consensus has emerged: Menet is a high-upside lineman and a must-get target who can anchor the line for years to come.
Menet stands at 6-5, 270 pounds as he prepares for his senior season with the Eagles. The four-star prospect has strength and weight to gain, but remains on course for stardom as a productive three-year starter and a tremendous athlete with a nearly 30-inch vertical leap. Among his many physical gifts, Menet’s footwork could be his calling card at Penn State.
Ross Tucker joined Dustin Hockensmith and Bob Flounders on the Keystone Sports Network this week to talk about Menet’s game and how he can help reshape the Nittany Lions’ offensive line.
