Ex-Penn State DL Antonio Shelton commits to SEC program
Antonio Shelton is leaving Penn State and heading to the SEC. The massive defensive tackle is Gainesville-bound to join Florida.
In what was an abbreviated season, Shelton put together a very solid season at Penn State with 13 tackles and 3.5 sacks, the sack total being a career-high. He also had a forced fumble and a pass defended in 2020.
He played four seasons at Penn State, who went 4-5 this past season. At Florida, he has a clear path to the top of the two-deep at the interior defensive line.
