Tanielu informed JCFootball.com that he has received an offer from Penn State.
The Lions join the likes of Boise State, BYU, Fresno State, Houston, Kansas, Louisville, Missouri, Nevada and Utah State in offering the talented defensive tackle prospect.
Tanielu said he plans to take unofficial visits to Boise State, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Texas and TCU this spring and summer.
As a freshman last season, Tanielu played the three-tech spot for the Badgers, using his size and quickness to be a real thorn in the side of opponents.
Tanielu is on pace to finish up his academic work in December and he will have three years to play two following the 2015 football season.
