2. Have other groups pick up the slack
Penn State does not need to replace Washington and Tinsley using just wide receivers.
The Nittany Lions have one of the top running back duos in the nation in Nick Singleton and Kaytron Allen. Each had over 1,000 scrimmage yards this season and combined for 21 touchdowns.
Penn State can opt to run the ball more early on in the season until Allar and his receivers get comfortable with each other and build a rhythm. As we saw at times throughout this season, these two backs can carry this team if needed.
They are also options in the pass game as well. Allen had 172 receiving yards this year, while Singleton had 11 catches for 85 yards. These two will arguably be the best play makers on the team next year, put the ball in their hands as much as possible and relieve some of the burden off of Allar.
Additionally, Penn State has a great tight end unit.
Even if the unit’s leader, Brenton Strange, does go to the NFL, this group is still in greats hands with Theo Johnson, Tyler Warren and others.
Johnson caught 19 passes for 300 yards and four touchdowns this year. Warren had nine catches for 108 yards and three scores. Giving these two a bigger role in the offense could help everyone else out as well.
