Chris Bleich, 4-Star OT, Decommits From Penn State

A 4-star offensive tackle reopened his recruitment.

Penn State lost a commitment Friday morning, leaving the team with 11 commitments from the 2018 recruiting class. Don't feel too bad for the Nittany Lions though, as the team still boasts the No. 2 class on the 2018 recruiting trail. Plymouth (Pa.) Wyoming Valley West offensive lineman Chris Bleich announced that he has reopened his recruitment.

Bleich issued the following statement on Twitter.

The move shouldn't come as a huge surprise, as Bleich committed very early on in the process before taking official visits to several other teams. Bleich most recently took a visit to Nebraska’s spring game, and he also went on trips to Mississippi State, Pittsburgh, Rutgers and Virginia Tech.

It's the most recent visit to Nebraska that intrigues. After his visit to the Cornhuskers, two recruiting experts predicted that Bleich will commit to Nebraska at some point during his recruitment.

According to 247Sports' Crystal Ball Predictions, Bleich is now predicted to land at one of three Big Ten teams. Nebraska, Penn State, and Rutgers are all in the running for the 4-star offensive tackle. However, Nebraska is the hottest of the three on Bleich's recruiting trail, picking up two predictions after his visit to Nebraska this past weekend.
