Penn State coaches pick spring stars (and a surprise), recruiting rewind, and more
Two Sundays from now, Penn State’s spring practice will be over with the Blue-White game going in the books a day earlier. Where has the time gone? It seems like just yesterday we were wrapping up National Signing Day 2017, doesn’t it?
No matter, the time has past with a commitment from three-star Texas corner Trent Gordon, about 10 practices to date, and some devastating injury news when Lions247 reported that starting corner an honorable mention All-Big Ten pick John Reid would miss “significant time,” if not the entire 2017 season, due to a knee injury suffered during a drill.
We’ll look at the impact of Reid’s absence, run down some recruiting tidbits to know, and look at some of the coaching staff’s picks as spring standouts thus far in this week’s Penn State rewind. Let’s get to it.
