"Antonio Shelton is a motivated young man, he set a goal for himself to earn a Division I scholarship as a freshman and worked hard to achieve his goal. I could not be happier that he will continue his football career at Penn State. I am proud of the of the work he put in as a student and an athlete to be eligible to earn this opportunity. I believe Antonio's best football is ahead of him. He is explosive off the ball and will only continue to get better once he gets to work with the staff at Penn State. I know he is excited to have the chance to play college football at the highest level and I am now one of Penn State's biggest fans."
