"Penn State is getting a great young man in Blake Gillikin. He is one of the best athletes I've ever coached. He could have played several positions for us. He has a tremendous presence and confidence level about him. And he always has the mindset that his next kick or punt is going to be the best of his career. The best part about Blake is that he is as dedicated of a student as he is an athlete. He truly is the essence of a student-athlete. He will represent Penn State exceptionally well."
