Penn State has added another member to its recruiting class for 2013 with an oral commitment from Hershey High offensive lineman Andrew Nelson, according to recruiting websites.
Nelson, 6-foot-5, 265 pounds, is the eighth member of Bill O'Brien's class and addresses a position of need. Penn State previously received an oral commitment from four-star offensive lineman Brendan Mahon of Randolph, N.J.
Nelson, whose given first name is David, is not rated by the major scouting services but has gotten a lot of recent attention. He projects as a tackle for the Nittany Lions.
