Michal Menet, a heralded offensive lineman from Reading, Pa., announced on Friday that he has committed to Penn State.

Menet, who received more than 20 scholarship offers, chose the Nittany Lions over Duke.

Menet spoke to Rivals.com about his commitment:

"I've known all of the coaches there for forever now," he said. "Relationships are really what it's all about. I have to be able to trust them they'll have my back up there and if they have my back I'll have theirs. Everything will flow accordingly.

"Coach (Herb) Hand was the main one for me, being my position coach," Menet said. "Besides him, all of the coaches have been coming by to see me when they are in town. They've all really played a part in my recruitment." 

Menet is the No. 7 offensive tackle and No. 81 player in the class of 2016, according to Rivals.com.

The 6'5,'' 268-pounder is the ninth player in the class of 2016 to commit to the Nittany Lions.

The group also includes top-60 recruits running back Miles Sanders and defensive end Shane Simmons.
