WHY I CHOSE PENN STATE
“I chose Penn State because I immediately fell in love with the school after my first visit and felt that it was the best fit for me in terms of both education and athletics. I couldn’t see myself anywhere else. It is an amazing opportunity to play for such incredible coaches and with such a talented team.”
