Penn State offers 2014 QB DeShone Kizer
By Jared Shanker
The Big Ten offers are starting to roll in for Toledo (Ohio) Central Catholic quarterback DeShone Kizer.
A day after landing an offer from Michigan State, Kizer added his 10th offer of the process when Penn State tendered him a scholarship Friday morning. Kizer reported the offer in a text message to ESPN.com.
"It would be very nice to play under a former nfl coach who has coached the best of the best when it comes to the quarterback position!" Kizer wrote.
Illinois, Kentucky, Louisville, Michigan State, Nebraska and Syracuse are the other BCS programs to offer Kizer, an ESPN Watch List prospect who stands 6-foot-5 and weighs 208 pounds.
Kizer could visit Michigan this coming weekend and will be at Ohio State for the Michigan game Nov. 24.
Kizer will lead Central Catholic tonight in a Division II regional final.
