August has been a good month for Penn State recruiting.
Athlete Malik Golden of Cheshire Academy in Cheshire, Conn., verbally committed to the Nittany Lions on Wednesday night, becoming the fourth player to do so this month. He was also reportedly considering Iowa, Connecticut and Boston College.
Bluewhiteillustrated rates the 6-foot-1, 185 pound Golden as a three-star athlete, while fightonstate.com gave him two stars.
“It was everything,” Golden told fightonstate.com of his decision. “It was the coaches, the atmosphere, the program and how comfortable I fit in. It’s definitely a weight off my shoulders. I feel great.”
