What’s Next?

The big question that still looms over Penn State Football this offseason is the quarterback position, and whether or not the quarterback for the 2021 is currently on the roster.

Former Oregon quarterback Tyler Shough quickly found a new home at Texas Tech after entering the portal over a week ago, leaving former Texas Tech quarterback Allan Bowman as the only big name, legit starter left available.

After the final game of the season, Franklin told the media that defensive end and secondary were going to be areas he would look to add to through the portal. It is possible Penn State still feels they could use more bodies at defensive end, even after adding Ebiketie.

With Anthony Poindexter in as the new safeties coach from Purdue, he will most likely want to assess what the Nittany Lions currently have at safety through spring ball and then look for Penn State Football to potentially add in the portal at that spot.

Portal news has quieted down of late but figures to pick up after spring practices and spring games conclude, where players will have a chance to assess where they stand on depth charts and make decisions on their future.

Being about six or seven spots under the roster max of 85, Penn State Football has the ability to be flexible and add at all these positions potentially if they so wish.
