Penn State Football has begun its winter workouts to begin the offseason. Players that perform well this winter could have big roles come fall.
Penn State Football is riding high. With an 11-2 season under their belts and a Rose Bowl victory, Penn State will look to build momentum this offseason. Winter workouts set the tone for the upcoming season. It will be the first winter session for many and that will provide them with a chance to make their mark come fall.
Here are 3 players that are breaking out this winter
Quarterback Beau Pribula has been a top performer in two of the three winter workouts so far. Pribula will remind fans of another player that wore the number nine for the Nittany Lions. This is a best-case scenario for Penn State Football as they head into the 2023 season with only Drew Allar with any experience. I’m not going to start a Quarterback controversy after three winter workouts, but it is great to see that Pribula may be pushing Allar.
Penn State Football is losing the best corner that it has seen with Joey Porter Jr. leaving for the NFL this spring. While Kalen King appears good enough to be CB1, there is competition for CB2. After three winter workouts, the Cornerback that has been the most impressive has been Cam Miller. Cam Miller has been the “Competitor of the Day” in the secondary for the last two workouts. The Penn State Football defense relies heavily on the ability of their Cornerbacks to lock down receivers. Cam Miller might be showing he is up to the task.
Offensive Tackle Caedan Wallace is working back from an injury that cost him the last five games of the regular season. Now healthy after the Rose Bowl, Wallace has been awarded the “Competitor of the Day” twice. The success of Caedan Wallace will be huge for the Penn State offense. Penn State will look to lean on the rushing attack with new signal caller Drew Allar taking over. If Wallace can provide the same protection that Olu Fashanu does on the other side, Penn State will really be setting their Quarterback up for success in 2023.
