Tom Pancoast (Kennett Square, Pa./Unionville) turned down scholarship offers from Bucknell and Colgate to commit to Penn State as a walk-on. The senior -- who plays quarterback and safety -- recently spoke with NittanyNation at length about his decision.

NittanyNation: You turned down two FCS scholarship offers to walk-on to Penn State. Was that a difficult decision, or did you know all along you were going to go here?

Tom Pancoast: Yeah, it was hard because Bucknell, they said I could get a $58,000-a-year scholarship and it's a great education there. It's a little harder to go to Penn State and eventually earn a scholarship. So I want to say it was a hard decision, but I feel like I knew I always wanted to go to Penn State. I feel like I couldn't live with myself knowning I wanted to do that, that I always wanted to do that as a kid and couldn't pass it up.
