Nittany Lions Offensive Line Overview

Penn State lost a few other veteran players on the offensive line, leaving them with a younger, more promising group. With only three seniors on the roster, a lot of young talent is going to be invited to grow very quickly.

Olumuyiwa Fashanu, who will protect Sean Clifford’s blindside, has a chance to become a keystone on this offensive line. The Maryland native has the size and speed at tackle point to really become something special this coming season.

Apart from Fashanu, there are a bunch of guys looking to make a living. Getting to know the vast depth of names in this young lineage can seem daunting, but this list should help sort things out. Many of these faces will be the ones fans will see over the next two to three years.
