“I came to Penn State not only to pursue a degree from the greatest university in the nation, but also to play in the best atmosphere in college football,” Godwin said in a post on his Twitter account.

He finishes his Penn State career tallying 2,404 receiving yards and 18 touchdowns on 154 catches.
