Paterno Names Robert Bolden Saturday’s Starter
The former four-star recruit out for St. Mary’s Prep in Michigan has the least experience of Penn State’s four quarterbacks. Kevin Newsome and Matt McGloin have been in Happy Valley for multiple years and Paul Jones, who was redshirted two weeks ago, enrolled early this past January.
Reports from summer camp had Bolden impressing coaches with his grasp of the offense and maturity in leading the team. Being a dual-threat quarterback in college will definitely help him as the offensive line continues to coalesce throughout the beginning of the season.
Paterno was quick to point out that Newsome and McGloin will also see time during this weekend’s matchup and a more concrete decision will be made after he sees who gives the Nittany Lions the best chance to win.
Do you think Bolden is the right choice? Would you rather see Kevin Newsome or Matt McGloin behind center?
