Lions land some toughness

Penn State has landed the commitment from a floor leader who brings a lot of toughness.

Penn State has it going in the 2013 class now. Needing to bring in a point guard, Pat Chambers and company went into the heart of Big Ten country and landed Minnesota Pump N Run floor general Graham Woodward.

"Graham's toughness is unquestioned," said AAU Coach Tom Kroschell. "He went toe-to-toe against some of the best point guards in the country and held his own. His intelligence is terrific, and he sees the floor and I think he is a great point guard."

Following an official visit to Happy Valley, Kroschell says that choice was clear to Woodward.

"He had a terrific official visit and he really had a great relationship the staff at Penn State," said Kroschell."

Kroschell continued, "I think the lure of playing in the Big Ten was just too great. Kids in Big Ten country tend to favor in the Big Ten, and being from Minnesota and being in Big Ten country I think that was the deciding factor."

Along with Penn State, Woodward also considered Gonzaga, Princeton, Drake, and Washington State. Recommended Stories
