WR Chris Godwin commits to Penn State

It looks as if Penn State doesn't mind taking three wideouts in this class, after all.
Penn State landed its sixth commitment of the 2014 class on Tuesday night when Chris Godwin (Middletown, Del./Middletown) told the staff he wanted to become a Nittany Lion. He said just last week that he planned on taking his time -- even though he knew PSU's offer wouldn't remain on the table forever -- but said late Tuesday he was pleased with his decision.
"I think I realized it was a great situation for me all over," Godwin said. "And, from there, it didn't seem like I was rushing into it because I knew what I wanted."
Godwin's pledge comes on the heels of a commitment from ESPN 150 wideout De'Andre Thompkins, who became the fifth commit Saturday. Wideout Troy Apke (Pittsburgh, Pa./Mt. Lebanon) was the first receiver to commit, just 10 days ago.
Godwin, who is 6-foot-2 and 197 pounds, picked Penn State over offers from Boston College, Cal, UConn, Maryland, UMass, NC State, Northwestern, Ohio State, Rutgers, South Carolina, Stanford and Virginia Tech.
Godwin finished his junior season with 42 catches for 834 yards and a dozen touchdowns. He also rushed for 427 yards and five scores. That averages out to 106 total yards and one TD every game. He also averaged close to 20 yards a catch.
