GA ATH excited about Penn State offer

It's taken a little while for Lawrenceville (Ga.) Archer athlete Deondre Singleton's recruitment to pick up, but things are coming together just in time for the end of his senior season.
Singleton recently picked up an offer from Penn State to add to a list that already included Air Force, Marshall and Appalachian State.
"They really want me to get up there for an official in December," Singleton said. "I also want to go to Appalachian State so I'll probably take both of those."
With offers continuing to roll in, Singleton said he's going to wait before planning how many of his official visit he'll take and which schools he'll be taking a closer look at.
"I'm not sure yet," he said. "I won't know for about another month or so."
Either way he figures to be traveling in December and making his decision shortly thereafter.
Despite the sanctions levied against Penn State, Singleton said he was thrilled to pick up an offer from the Nittany Lions.
"I want to go and play big-time football," he said. "And not being able to play in a bowl game doesn't affect my education. That's a good educational school and I'm all about academics before sports any day."
Penn State, like most of the schools interested in Singleton, wants him as a cornerback. He said the coaching staff also told him there is a potential for early playing time.
