Today’s Penn State football news headlines feature a post-practice gesture that caught the attention of FOX Sports national writer Bruce Feldman and more love for true freshman cornerback Lamont Wade.
Feldman was in town as part of his college campus tour and caught Penn State practice, which ended with every player thanking fans in attendance for coming. Judging by his other stops, Feldman should have a “takeaways” post on the Lions coming in the near future.

Wade is positioned for a bigger role in the Penn State secondary, and he’s been even better than advertised, according to safety Nick Scott. Wade is “killing it at corner” and has “a little mean streak to him,” according to Andrew Callahan of 247Sports and other published reports. The former five-star recruit enrolled in January and figured to get a bigger role with last week’s news of John Reid’s injury.
In other Penn State football news, Curtis Cothran looks to build on 2016 season. Four-star recruit Isheem Young is among the visitors expected on campus Wednesday, and Nick Scott is now at home on defense.
