What Penn State Football is Getting in Antoine Belgrave-Shorter

Belgrave-Shorter is recently coming off visits to both Miami and Penn State, most recently an April 1st visit to Happy Valley.

Coming off the April 1st visit, which was the same day that Belgrave-Shorter’s teammate Jon Mitchell committed to the Nittany Lions, Belgrave-Shorter told 247sports that Penn State was his “number one” school at the moment where “It looked like [he] could fit right into the system.” He visited Miami March 29th, after which he expressed the desire to “be back soon”, however, those feelings may have changed after the visit to Penn State.

Belgrave-Shorter is scheduled to be back to Penn State the weekend of June 9th for an official visit, joining recent Penn State commit Quinton Martin and top quarterback target Michael Van Buren for the official visit weekend.

Penn State is Jacksonville (Fla.) Mandarin CB Antoine Belgrave-Shorter’s “number one” following a multi-day visit to campus.
