The addition of Whigan propels Penn State’s recruiting class to No. 11 nationally and second in the B1G, according to 247Sports. Ohio State currently owns the conference’s top class.
Whigan is also the second player from Lackawanna Community College to commit to the Lions, joining teammate and 3-star safety Jaquan Brisker.
Whigan is a 4-star offensive tackle and is ranked as the 13th-best junior college prospect in the 2019 recruiting class. He’s also the third-ranked offensive tackle.
