It’s hard to argue against the notion that wide receiver is the strongest position in this 2014 recruiting class for Penn State. And one of those wide receivers is Delaware native Chris Godwin. He officially became the third wide receiver to fax in his letter today.

When Bill O’Brien took wide receiver coach Stan Hixon with him to the Houston Texans, there was word that Godwin would possibly look around at other schools. But the 6′ 2”, 202 pound wideout stuck with the Nittany Lions. The new Penn State coaching staff visited the talented receiver in January just to make sure he knew he was still very wanted at Penn State. He chose Penn State over the likes of Cal, Stanford, Virginia Tech and others. According to Rivals, Godwin is the top football recruit from the state of Delaware and the #21 wide receiver in the entire country.
He made his intent to become a member of the Nittany Lions official today.
Godwin and fellow 2014 wide receivers De’Andre Thompkins, Saeed Blacknall and Troy Apke form one of the more formidable wide receiver classes in the nation. With Penn State losing Allen Robinson and Brandon Felder next season, Godwin, along with these other guys, could become valuable parts of James Franklin’s offense early in their collegiate careers.
