Penn State Football: Nation's Top Kicker Commits To Penn State by Way of Music Video

by on July 10, 2015 11:15 AM

Penn State football has gone from no scholarship players at the specialist position to landing both the top punter and now the top kicker in the nation as Rockford, Michigan specialist Quinn Nordin committed to Penn State on Friday morning.

Nordin joins Atlanta punter Blake Gillikin, the nation’s No. 1 punter according to the 247 Network Composite rankings.

At 6-foot-1, 200-pounds Nordin selected the Nittany Lions over a large number of schools including Arizona State, Georgia, Iowa, Louisville, Michigan and Michigan State. By the end of his recruitment process Nordin was mostly considering Michigan, Penn State and Pitt.

Perhaps the most interesting aspect of Nordin's commitment, the way he announced his decision. While technically he spoke with a small group of reporters at his high school to make the news official, he also tweeted out what is essentially a short music video to tell the rest of the world his plans.

Nordin is Penn State's 16th verbal commit for the 2016 class but has by far given fans the most bang for their buck when it comes to recruiting news.
