The Nittany Lions like Marshawn's versatility and have verbally offered him a scholarship.  He has not yet received a written scholarship offer from Penn State.

"They're waiting for my SAT score to come back, but they said they're going to offer a full scholarship. I took the SAT again on December 1.

According to Marshawn, West Virginia, Tennessee, Maryland and Michigan were also recruiting him, although he has not received a written scholarship offer from those teams.

Marshawn likes the "friendly atmosphere" at Penn State.

Marshawn fell on his left shoulder during a basketball game, but he said he will play in the U.S. Army All-American Bowl on January 5.
