Read all about Penn State QB Tommy Stevens; diving into the Lions’ safety battle, and more
Today’s Penn State football news features a wealth of stories about backup quarterback Tommy Stevens, some recruiting analysis, and more.
No. 2 was the star of the Lions’ Saturday Blue-White scrimmage at Beaver Stadium, tossing for three touchdowns and well over 200 yards in the second half after starter Trace McSorley looked OK but at times shaky during the first 22 minutes of play in the spring finale.
“To me, at 75 percent of the programs out there he’d be a starter,” defensive coordinator Brent Pry said, according to the Centre Daily Times. “He’d be a starter and a winner. …We’re very fortunate to have him.”

Scout caught up with the head coach of new Penn State commit Antwan Reed, a three-star from Muskegon, Mich., to learn more about what the Lions are getting in the big brawler. Rivals chatted with Saturday’s other verbal commitment, four-star Stafford, Va., tackle Nana Asiedu, to learn why he picked the Lions during an unofficial visit.
“I decided to pick Penn State because that’s where I have the best relationships with the coaches and I feel the most comfortable,” Asiedu told the outlet’s Adam Friedman. “I feel like I fit in best there.”
Penn State continues to have the No. 2 recruiting Class of 2018 with 13 commits on board to date.
Elsewhere, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette has a rundown of lesser known names who stood out during the scrimmage, Lions247 explains why spring practice was successful, and The Daily Collegian writes on an impressive March and April for Penn State’s wide receivers.
