Penn State continues to add depth and size to its offensive line as Scranton native and Stanford graduate lineman Kevin Reihner announced his new destination late Tuesday night.
"I can't even explain how long I've wanted to say this. I just accepted an offer to play for the Nittany Lions. I'm coming home! #WeAre #570" Reihner tweeted.
Despite fairly limited action during his career at Stanford, Reihner brings size and experience at the college level. Reihner saw action in six games during his junior season before becoming a backup center this past campaign.
Fortunately for all involved Reihner will transfer and be immediately eligible as a graduate transfer. According to NCAA rules, graduate transfers are eligible immediately as long as the school they are headed to offers a degree not available at the student athlete's previous institution.
Weighing in at 6-foot-4, and 295-pound Reihner was an all-state selection out of Scranton Prep in 2010 before signing with the Cardinal under head coach David Shaw.
Reihner’s father George, was an offensive lineman at Penn State and for the Houston Oilers.
