PSU Scores 6th Commit: 4-star WR Chris Godwin

Ain’t no such thing as too many four-star wide receivers, if Bill O’Brien’s recruiting is any indication. Last night, Penn State secured a verbal from Middletown, Delaware’s Chris Godwin — the third four-star receiver to commit to O’Brien’s program in the last ten days, joining fellow commits DeAndre Thompkins and Troy Apke.

Godwin, a 6-2, 192-pound wideout, had also received offers from powerhouse programs such as Ohio State, Stanford, Virginia Tech, and West Virginia. He is rated a four-star prospect by both Rivals and Scout.

In his most recent season, the current high school junior recorded 42 receptions for 834 yards and 12 touchdowns while adding 427 yards and 5 TDs on the ground. Godwin was also named 2012’s Gatorade Delaware Football Player of the Year, which recognizes “athletic excellence” and “high standards of academic achievement and exemplary character demonstrated on and off the field.”

Godwin will add to a talented pool of receivers that already includes 2012 standout Allen Robinson, up-and-coming redshirt freshman Eugene Lewis, and incoming freshman DaeSean Hamilton. With fellow 2014 commits Apke and Thompkins also in the mix at receiver, the position should be stacked for years to come.

Embedded below is a compilation of Godwin’s highlights, and by the way, did I mention that he also plays linebacker?
