Lancaster (Pa.) McCaskey offensive lineman Joel Holler talks about his Penn State verbal commitment.

Last May, we evaluated Pennsylvania’s Joel Holler and as a junior, it was easy to see that Holler was a blue-chip offensive tackle that would play big time D-1 football.

Holler was offered several scholarships including one from Ohio State. The 6-foot-6, 330-pounder, eventually made a verbal commitment to Penn State and he shed some light on that decision.

“Well, I went to both Ohio State and Virginia Tech in November and I went to Penn State on December 6th,” Holler said.

“I was scheduled to go down to Miami the week after my Penn State visit but I didn’t feel the need to do that.

“Penn State was the best place for me. I can’t describe it. Everyone told me that I’d get a feeling of which school is the best for me and I got that feeling at Penn State.”

Does Holler feel that he’ll get the chance to play early in Happy Valley?

“I was told if I worked hard in the off-season and I pick up the system right away, there’s always a chance of playing early.

“Competition is a big part of college football and I’m going into fall practice with the mindset of competing for a job.” Holler said.

Joel Holler has a tremendous work ethic and we’ll be looking for him opening up holes for the next great running back at Penn State in the very near future.
