Penn State picked up commitment No. 13 for its 2013 recruiting class today in Damascus, Md., prospect Zach Bradshaw, according to Blue White Illustrated.
Bradshaw is listed as a 6-foot-3, 205-pound wide receiver, but he's projected to play linebacker at the next level. He had scholarship offers from close to 20 schools including Arizona, Boston College, Duke, and Georgia Tech, as well as Penn State's Big Ten foes Illinois, Michigan, Northwestern and Purdue, according to his Rivals.com profile. Local schools West Virginia, Maryland, Virginia and Temple had offered scholarships, as well.
Bradshaw is a consensus three-star prospect. He's ranked as the No. 34 prospect at the "athlete" position and No. 9 overall in Maryland by 247 Sports. Scout.com ranks him as the No. 67 outside linebacker prospect in the country and ESPN.com gives him a Scout's Grade of 73.
His 247 profile says he was recruited by Penn State defensive line coach Larry Johnson Sr., who is generally in charge of recruiting the state of Maryland.
Below is a video of some of his junior season highlights. In it, he plays a number of different positions on both sides of the ball and dabbles in the special teams area.
