The news Isheem Young announced Tuesday, he knew on April 12. That day, he silently committed to play football at Penn State. Tuesday, he broke the silence.

Young, a rising senior safety at Imhotep Charter, made his commitment to the Nittany Lions public with a video of a pool party filmed by Bleacher Report. When Young dived into the pool, it lit up with the Penn State logo, and Young said, “We Are … Penn State.”

Bleacher Report approached Young about doing the video and told him to think of an idea. His first thought was a paintball fight. But then he saw that someone else had done that. He settled on the pool party.

Young sat Tuesday at a table in Imhotep’s cafeteria in front of about 50 teammates, friends and family. He unveiled a Penn State hat, showing support for a school that most experts predicted he would choose.
