What is Penn State getting in Asiedu?

"I have a strong work ethic on and off the field," Asiedu said. "I also love to compete."

The North Stafford standout emphasized the coaches played a pivotal role in his commitment.

"I'm very close with (running backs) coach (Charles) Huff and (offensive line) coach (Matt) Limegrover," Asiedu said. "They're both very sincere and care about you as a person, not just football player. They're energetic, too, and fun to be around."

"He's done a great job and I love being around him," Asiedu said. "He's very honest and down to earth. He also has a great relationship with my family. I'm excited about the opportunity."

He is the 12th commitment in Penn State's 2018 recruiting class.
