Penn State received a verbal commitment from four-star 2017 WR Kahlee Hamler.

There is no real way to know how much Penn State's near-Playoff run swayed Hamler's mind, but that certainly could have played into his decision. Scout tabs the 5-foot-9, 152-pounder as their No. 52 overall prospect for the 2017 cycle. The outlet notes that Hamler is a "[v]ery quick, explosive kid who creates a lot of separation." They are particularly keen on his body control. Even with a noticeably undersized frame, Scout believes the wideout's overall skill-set will allow him to find success at the collegiate level.

Penn State redshirt junior WR DaeSean Hamilton had eight receptions for 118 yards in Saturday's Big Ten Championship Game win against Wisconsin.

All things considered, this may have been Hamilton's best showing on a collegiate field. He hauled in eight-of-eight targets in topping 100 yards receiving for the first time in over two years. Hamilton has disappointed since his outstanding freshman campaign, but it's a very promising sign indeed that he's beginning to develop chemistry with Trace McSorley.
Dec 7 - 3:46 PM

Penn State sophomore RB Saquon Barkley (foot) had 83 yards and a touchdown on 19 attempts in Saturday's Big Ten Championship Game victory over Wisconsin.

He chipped in two receptions for 20 yards and a touchdown. Barkley still hasn't completely shaken the right foot injury he suffered in last month's win over Michigan State, but he toughed it out and showed pretty well against Wisconsin's vicious front seven. Barkley heads into the Rose Bowl against USC with 1,302 yards on the ground and 16 rushing touchdowns on 5.27 yards per carry.

Penn State redshirt senior LB Nyeem Wartman-White will enter the 2017 NFL Draft rather than take advantage of one more year of eligibility.

Wartman-White dealt with plenty of injuries, including a 2015 ACL issue in his left knee that caused him to miss the entire season. He suffered the same injury in his right knee this year. Rather than pursue a medical redshirt, the linebacker is off to the NFL. He has been a starter when healthy.

Penn State junior WR Saeed Blacknall caught six passes for 155 yards and two touchdowns in Saturday's 38-31 win over Wisconsin in the Big Ten Championship Game.

Both of Blacknall's touchdown grabs came from distance, as he hauled in a 40-yard score with a minute to go before halftime and then bested himself with an even longer, 70-yard touchdown in the opening minutes of the third quarter. The 6-foot-5, 212-pound junior almost eclipsed his previous production on the season in this one game. Prior to declawing the Badgers, he had caught nine passes for 192 yards and a touchdown in six games played.
Dec 4 - 12:12 AM

Penn State redshirt sophomore QB Trace McSorley was brilliant in Saturday's 38-31 win over Wisconsin in the Big Ten Championship Game, throwing for 384 yards and four touchdowns.

McSorley was nothing short of phenomenal in this one, helping the Nittany Lions to withstand an early flurry of punches from the Badgers via a monster comeback from down 28-7 midway through the second quarter. The 6-foot, 195-pounder showed beautiful touch and placement on multiple passes, including a 70-yard scoring toss to Saeed Blacknall early in the third quarter. McSorley averaged a stellar 12.3 YPA in the win. His performance on Saturday boosted him to single-season school records for both passing yardage (3,360 yards) and passing touchdowns (25).
Dec 4 - 12:05 AM

Penn State HC James Franklin said that sophomore RB Saquon Barkley (foot) will play in the Big Ten Championship Game against Wisconsin on Saturday.

All systems go. Barkley dinged up his right foot in this past weekend's victory over Michigan State, but said at the beginning of the practice week that he was "feeling fine." Nothing has changed in the interim. On Friday, Franklin indicated that the 5-foot-11, 222-pounder has not missed a practice since that game against Sparty and that he "looks great."
Dec 2 - 6:06 PM

Penn State sophomore RB Saquon Barkley (foot) indicated that he expects to play in the Big Ten championship game against Wisconsin on Saturday.

Barkley suffered an injury to his right foot in Saturday's win over Michigan State, but all early indications are that it shouldn't keep him off the field for this weekend's title game. On Sunday, HC James Franklin said that the program is "expecting and anticipating" on the 5-foot-11, 222-pound sophomore taking the field, while Barkley himself said on Monday that he is "feeling fine." He indicated that he is receiving treatment and taking his health day-to-day. Barkley has rushed for 1,219 yards (5.3 YPC) and 15 touchdowns through 12 games played.
Nov 28 - 4:10 PM

Penn State sophomore WR Chris Godwin caught five passes for 135 yards and two touchdowns in Saturday's 45-12 win over Michigan State.

He averaged 27.0 yards per catch with a long of 59. This was Godwin's second 100-yard game of the year. A 1,000-yard campaign isn't out of the question yet, but Godwin will have to average a little more than 100 yards receiving per game assuming Penn State has two more.
Nov 26 - 7:34 PM

Penn State redshirt sophomore QB Trace McSorley completed 17-of-23 passes for 376 yards and four touchdowns in Saturday's 45-12 win over Michigan State.

Penn State needed to win this game to clinch the East and reach the Big 10 Championship following Michigan's loss earlier in the day. McSorley came up big in the pressure spot, playing his best game of the season amidst the Spartans shutting down the Nittany Lions' ground attack. He'll carry 2,976 passing yards and a 21/5 TD/INT rate into the title game.
Nov 26 - 7:29 PM

Penn State junior T Paris Palmer (leg) will miss the final two games of the 2016 regular season.

Palmer injured his leg on a 10-yard touchdown run by QB Trace McSorley in Saturday's win over Indiana. The 6-foot-7, 278-pound junior was seen sporting crutches later in the game. HC James Franklin indicated that the team is still sorting out its offensive line situation in advance of this weekend's showdown with Rutgers.

Nov 15 - 3:02 PM

Penn State sophomore RB Saquon Barkley received a career high 33 carries for 60 yards and two touchdowns in the school's 45-31 in over Indiana.

Barkley's day was a difficult one in terms of picking up difficult yards, but NFL evaluators will appreciate his fight to get what was blocked for him. Barkley added two catches for 34 yards, including a 32 yard catch. He is not draft eligible, but Barkley is one of the best backs in the nation.
Nov 12 - 4:47 PM

Penn State redshirt junior G Brendan Mahon has been hospitalized for an undisclosed ailment.

A Penn State spokesman confirmed that Mahon is currently in stable condition at Hershey Medical Center. No further details as to the reason or circumstance of his hospitalization have been made available. Related or not, the 6-foot-4, 320-pounder did suffer an apparent injury during Saturday's win over Iowa, one which eventually saw him carted to the locker room.

Nov 9 - 1:13 PM

Penn State sophomore RB Saquon Barkley rushed for 167 yards and a touchdown on 20 carries in Saturday's 41-14 win over Iowa.

Barkley has been a beast over his last four games, dropping 202 yards on Maryland, 99 on Ohio State, 207 on Purdue and Saturday's 167 against Iowa. The 5-foot-11, 222-pounder sliced through the Hawkeyes' hapless defense at an 8.35 YPC clip and ripped off a 57-yard touchdown run with 10:39 remaining in the first half. Penn State held a 24-7 lead when they trotted into the locker room for orange slices, one which Iowa never realistically threatened. For the season as a whole, Barkley has now rushed for 1,055 yards and 11 touchdowns in nine games.
Nov 6 - 12:19 AM

Penn State QB Trace McSorley completed 12 of 23 attempts for 228 yards and three touchdowns in the school's 62-24 win over Purdue.

McSorley is exceptionally inefficient. Last week he completed 8 of 23 passes in a victory over a top five team, now he again completes less than fifty percent of his attempts in a win. Penn State faces Iowa next.
