Four-star offensive tackle, Landon Tengwall, has signed his National Letter of Intent to play football at Penn State. Tengwall is a fix-foot-six-inch, 300-pound offensive tackle from Olney, Maryland. He committed to the Nittany Lions back on March 26th and has been a strong voice throughout his commitment.
Landon Tengwall Signs NLI at Penn State
Tengwall has offers from 29 other Division I schools, including five Big Ten schools. Homestate Maryland was one of those offers. As well as Ohio State, Michigan, Alabama, Duke, Notre Dame, and Pitt to name a few. The 247Sports Composite has him as the number one player out of Maryland, as well as the seventh-ranked offensive tackle in the nation. Rivals has him as the 38th recruit in the nation. In addition, Rivals ranks him as the eighth-ranked offensive tackle and the second-ranked recruit in Maryland. Tengwall plans to enroll early in January to gain experience and have a shot at achieving his goal of starting for the Nittany Lions as a freshman.
New Offensive Line Coach Phil Trautwein will have one season at Penn State under his belt before Tengwall arrives on campus. This commitment was a huge get for Trautwein, with help from tight ends coach and offensive recruiting coordinator Tyler Bowen. Trautwein is looking to improve the consistency of the offensive line. Tengwall will definitely help with that. He is athletic and light-footed. Maybe this stems from him playing wide receiver in middle school, before switching to the offensive line. He has good strength before stepping into a college weight room and is quick. Tengwall plays with accuracy at all levels, but will likely need to work on footwork to cover edge rushers in the Big Ten. Specifically those at Ohio State.
