Bill O'Brien and the Penn State staff picked up a commitment from four-star wide receiver Chris Godwin on Tuesday night.
"I called up Coach O'Brien and we talked for a little bit and I said that I was ready to be a Nittany Lion," said the 6-foot-2, 192-pound Godwin. "When I told him he got really excited. He told me that they are really excited that I chose them and that they are looking forward to getting me on campus and playing there."
With a limited number of scholarships available, Godwin knew that it was important to make sure Penn State could take his commitment.

"Everything is all good," he said.
Needless to say, Godwin is anxious to get started in Happy Valley.
"I think, when I first get up there they are expecting me to compete," Godwin said. "There is a possibility for me to play early. It all depends on how I come along and how quickly I learn the playbook. There is definitely an opening for a wide receiver to come in and play. I'm going to try to get up there during the summer time, maybe during their camp."
Godwin is already making plans and connecting with another Penn State commit from Delaware.
"I talked to Troy Reeder because he is in Delaware with me," he said. "We talked a little tonight. He seemed really happy. We're both excited to get up to Penn State and continue the great tradition they have."
Godwin will be competing in the Rivals Camp Series Presented by Under Armour in New Jersey on April 27.
