Robert Bolden from the Great Lakes state is arguably one of the best dual threat quarterbacks in the country for high school. He was recruited by many Division 1 schools such as Michigan State, Michigan, Penn State, Oregon, Nebraska, and West Virginia.

Bolden is rated as the #6 dual-threat quarterback by and the #8 QB by He is also one of the few of the nations players that appear on the Espn 150 list for high school prospects.

There were many recruiting sources that believed that Bolden would stay in-state and play for either Michigan or Michigan State. Devin Gardner, another top QB from Michigan, opted to secure his spot at Michigan before any other prospects could. Furthermore, top QB Joe Boisture from Saline, MI decided to take a spot with the Spartans.

Bolden took a recent visit to Penn State and seemed to enjoy it very much. Today, he decided to make the call and choose Joe Pa and the Nittany Lions to pursue the next step in his career.

He will not have to worry about the stressful recruiting pressures anymore. Instead, he will be more focused on helping Orchard Lake St. Mary's chances of playing in a state title game this year.
