Penn State Recruiting: Gary Wooten Adds Linebacker For Lions

Florida area recruit Gary Wooten committed to play at Penn State University on Sunday, which will help the team bolster their defense with the addition of the 6-foot-2, 190 pound outside linebacker.

Rated as a three-star recruit by Yahoo!'s Rivals.com, Wooten was reportedly being recruited by Vanderbilt, Arkansas, Washington State, Florida International, UMass, Eastern Michigan, Florida Atlantic and Miami. Penn State's interaction was initiated by the team's defensive coordinator Ted Roof, who was familiar with Wooten.

The Hialeah High School product graduated in 2011 but was persuaded by his family to take a year off in order to stay close to home. Now a member of the Nittany Lions 2012 recruit class, Wooten is expected to join the team in Happy Valley on Monday.
