It’s Wednesday, meaning it’s now one day closer until the Penn State Nittany Lions take the field in Dublin to begin their 2014 season. The closer we get to the start of the season, the more news that will fly in. For today, we still have player profiles, preseason watch lists news and of course, recruiting news.

First, cornerback Jordan Lucas, recently named to the Bednarik Award watch list, is previewed. Secondly, like Lucas, tight ends Jesse James and Kyle Carter have also been named to preseason watch lists. Both talented tight ends are candidates for the Mackey Award, given to the nation’s top tight end. Elsewhere, class of 2015 target Tim Settle says that Penn State is heavily pursuing him during the The Opening, while 2015 verbal commit Brandon Wimbush has stood out at the Elite 11 Camp as a top quarterback prospect. He’s even earned the praise of former NFL quarterback Trent Dilfer. Finally, Black Shoe Diaries has started a series taking a look at the favorite Penn State games of the staff writers.
