Today’s Penn State football news headlines feature love for the Lions on the recruiting trail and a look at the Lions’ big question in 2018.
Ismael Sopsher is a five-star defensive tackle from Amite (La.) High School in the 2019 class, whose list of suitors features LSU and Alabama at the top. But he told Tyler Donohue from Land of 10 that his mother “loves” Penn State, who he lists among his top schools. Sopsher told Donohue he’s “trying to give them a chance.”
BTN’s Tom Dienhart lays out 18 questions for Big Ten teams in 2018 and arrives at two offensive-minded queries for Penn State. How much will the Lions miss Saquon Barkley and Joe Moorhead? The Penn State offense returns plenty of firepower, but is set to be reworked around Miles Sanders in a new-look backfield and first-year coordinator Ricky Rahne.
In other Penn State football news, the Lions have the pieces for a dominant defensive front. Yetur Gross-Matos aims to channel his potential into production, and Jesse Luketa is eager to join the Linebacker U lineage.
