Penn State Football has high expectations heading into the 2023 season.
Penn State Football will have a new quarterback for the first time since 2019 with youngster Drew Allar likely taking over for Sean Clifford.
Allar heads into the offseason with a ton of hype. The former 5-star recruit in the 2022 recruiting class showed glimpses of greatness in the small sample size he played last season.
Penn State’s 2023 roster is one of the more talented ones for the program in recent history. While it may lack the star power that the 2017 and 2019 teams had, it is deep across the board and has plenty of future NFL talent.
