About a week after he received an offer to join the Penn State football program, Lackawanna College punter Bradley King accepted it.
Via his Twitter account on Monday, King announced he accepted the chance to join the Nittany Lions this fall as a preferred walk-on.
He’s an interesting case, for sure. A guy who averaged about 33 yards per punt during his career with the Falcons but who also has a strong leg and manages consistently good hang time. Once he gets into a program where he can get some consistent looks and attention from a coach devoted to special teams, he’s expected to be a guy who can take a big leap. Blake Gillikin returns for his senior season in the fall, but the Penn State punting job will be wide open in 2020, and King being in the program a year ahead of that gives him a fighting chance.
