Penn State lands a quarterback…maybe

The Nittany Lions have added a quarterback to their 2009 class… or maybe it's another wide receiver.

Curtis Drake, a 6-foot, 175-pound quarterback from West Catholic High, gave Penn State an oral commitment during a visit yesterday.

The senior has led the Burrs to two straight Catholic League Blue Division championships. And though he said Penn State coaches assured him he'd have a shot at playing quarterback, his future is likely at wide receiver.

"I'd rather be a quarterback," Drake said. "But if I have the opportunity to get on the field faster as a wide receiver, I'm fine with that."

Whatever position it might be, welcome to the Nittany Lions, Curtis.
