Penn State Football goes into the offseason with as much hype as any team in the country
Winter workouts are underway for Penn State Football as the program heads into one of the more important offseasons of James Franklin’s tenure.
Returning players, incoming transfers and early enrollee freshmen will all take part in the winter workouts and then spring camp, which will start in March. These months are critical for the development of players and is when most of their physical growth will happen.
After going 11-2 with a Rose Bowl victory in 2022, many national media outlets have pointed to the Nittany Lions as a possible College Football Playoff contender in 2023. This hype only grew as multiple key players like LT Olu Fashanu, LB Curtis Jacobs and TE Theo Johnson made the decision to return in 2023.
While Penn State has returning stars all over the field, new players will emerge as key contributors as the 2023 season goes on. Most of those players will make improvements to their game in the coming months that will pay dividends once the season starts in September.
Here are three Penn State football players who are poised to make a jump in their development this offseason.
