After not landing a pure quarterback in the scholarship recruiting classes of 2007 and 2008, the Nittany Lions are now loading up on talented passers.
The latest to commit to Joe Paterno and his staff is Robert Bolden, a 6-foot-4, 195-pounder from St. Mary Prep in Orchard Lake, Mich. Bolden announced for the Nittany Lions at his school Friday morning, according to Scout.com recruiting expert Allen Trieu.
Bolden is a four-star prospect as rated by Scout.com and the eighth-ranked quarterback in the nation. He is the 12th player to commit to PSU for its class of 2010, which is expected to have a maximum of 19 members.
Bolden is the second quarterback in this class, joining Scout.com five-star prospect Paul Jones of Sto-Rox High in McKees Rocks, Pa.
The Nittany Lions also landed four-star quarterback Kevin Newsome in their class of 2009.
