New Nittany Lion Coach and Staff Sign 19 Student-Athletes to Letters of Intent
The Nittany Lions must replace two senior starters on the offensive line from last season and Anthony Alosi is looking forward to the competition entering fall camp. Alosi has worked at guard and tackle and is working hard to crack the rotation. He likely will battle Angelo Mangiro for the top reserve spot at right guard behind 2012 first-team All-Big Ten selection John Urschel. A standout offensive tackle at New Jersey's Cherokee High School and The Hun School, Alosi played defensive tackle as a member of the scout team during his redshirt season, but returned to the offensive line in 2012. Alosi is one of the squad's most active members in community service. He is among the student-athletes who have participated in the Penn State Athletes Take Action anti-bullying program in a local middle school created by former Lady Lion basketball player Gizelle Studevent. Alosi earned a grade-point average above 3.0 during the spring semester. He is among eight returnees from New Jersey and joins redshirt freshman center Wendy Laurent as current Nittany Lions who played at The Hun School.

Alosi was a two-way lineman and captain of The Hun School's state championship squad in 2010, playing for Coach Dave Dudeck. Alosi was named first-team All-South Jersey during his senior season at Cherokee High School. He recorded 39 tackles, three sacks and 12 tackles for loss as a senior defensive lineman. On offense, he recorded 30 pancake blocks, while leading the way for a rushing attack which gained more than 2,000 yards over the team's eight-game schedule.
