Finally, Penn State lands first commit for 2011

It wasn't the big splash of a recruit we were all hoping for, but Penn State did get its first verbal commitment today for the 2011 recruiting class--Delaware tight end Kyle Carter.

Here's the lowdown on Carter.

Kyle Carter
Tight End
New Castle, DE/William Penn

Carter is a 6-foot-4, 230-pounder out of Delaware, a state the Nittany Lions have grown to appreciate more and more in recent years. The rising senior held a few FCS (I-AA) scholarship offers, namely from Bucknell and Delaware. Rutgers was the only major FBS (I-A) program expressing serious interest, and was rumored to have made a verbal offer.
