Lions Em-Bolden QB Corps

Michigan standout Robert Bolden is the third four-star or better QB to pick PSU in the last year. Scout's Allen Trieu was on hand for the announcement.

Penn State is making up for lost time.

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 recruiting expert Allen Trieu.

He picked Penn State over Oregon and Louisville.

Bolden is a four-star prospect as rated by 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 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.
