The Penn State football team, already with one top-10 quarterback committed to be part of its 2010 recruiting class, got positive news from another on Friday morning when Michigan prep signal-caller Robert Bolden announced that he too would be joining the Nittany Lions at a press conference at St. Mary's High School in Detroit.
Bolden (6-foot-4, 205 pounds) is Scout.com's eighth-ranked quarterback in the class of 2010 and the sixth-ranked dual-purpose quarterback according to Rivals.com.
Bolden selected the Lions over Louisville and Oregon. Michigan State was also high on his list and considered by some to be leading to land his services until the last few weeks.
Bolden is the 12th recruit for Penn State's 2010 recruiting class and the second top-10 quarterback, joining Sto-Rox's Paul Jones, who intends to enroll in January. The Lions also signed a top-10 quarterback in 2009, Virginia's Kevin Newsome.
