Michal Menet is ready for Penn State
In a detailed and, overall fantastic interview with PennLive, Michal Menet spoke about what he has seen from Penn State so far in 2015, and what his goals are as he looks forward to his freshman season at Penn State. He speaks about how he wants to challenge for a starting spot as a freshman, how he wants to help deliver the Nittany Lions a championship and more. From Menet:
I'm very invested in turning the program around and putting it back on the map.
It's a fantastic interview with Penn State's highest-rated recruit, and well worth the read.
