On Friday Penn State assistant coach Larry Johnson informed Virginia wide receiver Matt Zanellato that he would be receiving an official written offer when he came down to visit him this week. According to Lions 24/7, Zanellato called Larry Johnson this evening and gave his verbal commitment to Penn State.
Zanellato is a relatively unknown prospect with offers from only Delaware and Miami of Ohio. He saw next to no interest until his senior year. That is when he transferred to Lake Braddock High School to play in a spread offense that would better show off his skills. It appears to be a move that paid off as Zanellato had 76 catches for 1,444 yards and 17 TD this fall.
Zanellato stands 6'3" and weighs 190 lbs. He reportedly runs the 40 somewhere in the 4.5 range. He is the sixth verbal commitment for the class of 2011. And he comes at a position of need as the Nittany Lions lose Brett Brackett and Graham Zug to graduation this year, and Derek Moye is done after next year.
Here's what you've won.
