Soon, they will share a team.
The Camp Hill, Pa., Trinity receiver and Mifflintown, Pa., Juniata running back both opted to pass over smaller school scholarship offers to walk on at Penn State. It will be the fulfillment of a dream for each.
Both are on track to arrive this summer ahead of head coach James Franklin's first August camp at PSU.
"It's just an amazing place to be," Bodley said when explaining why he picked the Lions. "There's just something about the campus. It's lively, and about as nice of a place as you could want to go to college athletically, academically and all that."

Bodley missed most of his senior season with a hamstring injury. It's fully healed now, though, and he showed no sign of limitations while running the 100 meter dash or competing in the PIAA discus finals.
The senior is slated to arrive at University Park June 27 after attending freshman orientation there recently. He feels his success on the track was proof that he is healthy and ready for gridiron action.
"I've really stepped up at the end of the track season," Bodley said. "They said running back, special teams to start out with."
Kuntz, meanwhile, is a big body receiver at 6-foot-5, 210 pounds. He caught 64 passes for 1,141 yards and scored 13 touchdowns in his final high school season according to PennLive.com.
"He's a really sincere guy," Kuntz said. "I believe everything he says to me, and I feel it's a good opportunity for me to get the best education possible and do something I love, which is play football."
So how does the head coach see the younger Kuntz fitting into the program? Well, it's not all that different from how former head coaches Joe Paterno and Bill O'Brien used his brother.
"[Franklin] wants me to play out wide," Brandon Kuntz said. "However he wants to utilize me there [is OK]. Maybe red zone, throw it up and get it kind of things."
The receiver is slated to arrive at University Park in late July.
"I'm not going to say I always knew, but I had a feeling I might end up there," Kuntz said. "I'm glad I am. I trusted [Christian's] advice which is, like, go where I fit best and not where people want me to go.
"Penn State happened to work out for everyone."
