Noah Beh, a 6-foot-7, 245-pound two-way lineman from Scranton, said Saturday he had given a commitment to Penn State coach Bill O’Brien to become part of the Nittany Lions’ freshman Class of 2014, according to several media outlets.

Beh, rated three stars by Rivals, a recruiting web site, played offensive tackle and defensive end for Scranton Prep. He is expected to play offense for the Nittany Lions.

Beh told O’Brien of his decision at Penn State’s advanced skills camp.

“I feel really good about it,” he told the Scranton Times-Tribune. “I thought about this long and hard and put in a lot of time talking with my parents. I know that this is the best fit for me.”

Beh is the 10th high school player – and first lineman – to give an oral commitment to Penn State. The Nittany Lions have just 15 scholarships to give out because of NCAA sanctions handed down last July.
