So why not bring a little attention to yourself?

That's what Quinn Nordin did with his commitment Friday to Penn State. Here's what he posted on Twitter:

Over the top? Just right? Whatever you think, it's a new twist to commitment announcements.

A 3-star kicker from Rockford High School in Michigan, Nordin is the nation's top-rated kicker, according to 247Sports.com. That gives the Nittany Lions the top two specialists in the country, according to 247Sports.com. They also have a commitment from the nation's top punter, Blake Gillikin.

And for Penn State, that's something points out Penn State beat writer Ben Jones.
