In his words …
“Before we actually visited, I felt real comfortable and told my parents I wanted to commit, but they told me to wait until I visited to see if anything jumped out at me. As soon as I stepped foot on campus, I was blown away and knew it was the place for me. It felt like home.”

“I have a lot of respect and appreciation for the schools that showed interest in me, but Penn State is the place for me, regardless of the sanctions. One of the things the Penn State coaches stressed and that resonated with me is that, while bowl games are great, they’re not all football is about. It’s about playing the game you love with teammates you respect and love. For me, that said enough.”
