“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. The two-time All-Big Ten selections, including All-Big Ten third team honors this season, ranks in the top-four in program history in receiving yards and touchdowns. He finishes his Penn State career tallying 2,404 receiving yards and 18 touchdowns on 154 catches.

The wide out from Middletown, De. had a phenomenal junior campaign posting 982 receiving yards and 11 touchdowns on the year. After catching nine passes for 187 yards and two touchdowns in the instant classic at the Rose Bowl on Monday, Godwin is going into the pre-draft process with a lot of momentum.
