Shady Side Academy offensive lineman Mike Farrell has made a verbal commitment to Penn State.
Farrell, 6 feet 6, 280-pounds, is projected to play tackle for the Nittany Lions. He chose Penn State over Miami of Ohio.
"I liked everything I saw in both places, but what it came down to is that I liked Penn State just a little more," Farrell said. "I am definitely grateful for the opportunity. I am going to redshirt next year and definitely use the year to get bigger and stronger."
Farrell plans to sign with Penn State on Feb. 6, national letter of intent signing day.
