"I'm very excited," Holtz said. "I've always wanted to go to Penn State and it's like a dream come true."
He added, "It's the perfect place."
Even though Holtz made his intentions known Friday, he has known for a whole where he wanted to commit.
"I've known I wanted to commit for the past couple weeks or so," Holtz said.
Holtz is listed as a TE, but played mostly RB during his junior season at Shaler Area HS -- and PSU plans to utilize his athleticism as more than a TE, as well.
"They want me at linebacker, also," Holtz said. "They want me as an athlete."
The big 6-foot-4, 235-pound athlete couldn't be happier to call himself a Nittany Lion.
"I'm very excited about it," Holtz said. "I don't care what position I play, I just want to win games."
