One of the nation's most highly-recruited offensive linemen, Eric Shrive is ready to get back on the field and begin making an impact for the Nittany Lions. Rated the nation's No. 2 tackle out of West Scranton HS, Shrive has the skills and physical attributes to become a contributor this fall in his redshirt freshman season. He has made significant progress during his first year in Happy Valley and ended spring drills looking to challenge DeOn'tae Pannell and Johnnie Troutman for time at left guard. The talented, strong and instinctive Shrive was a prep teammate of Nittany Lion quarterback Matt McGloin. He is one of 14 returning Nittany Lions from Eastern Pennsylvania.
