Penn State offers 2020 D-end recruit; Lions could play Pitt under the lights, and more
Penn State’ James Franklin: Lions have had strong, but sometimes sloppy, spring
Today’s Penn State football news headlines feature a new offer to a 2020 defensive end and a potential night kick in a road game at Pittsburgh.
The Lions sent out an offer to Myles Murphy, a 6-4, 230-pound pass-rusher from Powder Springs (Ga.) High School. Murphy is a four-star prospect who checks in at No. 34 overall in early 247Sports national rankings. Andrew Callahan from Lions 247 has more on the offer.
The Pittsburgh Pirates announced they were rescheduling a Sept. 8 night game to accommodate a baseball-football, day-night doubleheader. That move clears a path for a night kickoff at Heinz Field when the Nittany Lions travel to Pitt. Neither program has made an announcement on a kick time.
In other Penn State football news, K.J. Hamler and Brandon Polk bring a double dose of speed. Brent Pry dishes on the mystery at middle linebacker, and Nick Scott is set to crack the Lions’ lineup.
