NittanyNation takes a look at this week’s Penn State football news and what you might have missed:
- DE Jordan Kerner is trying not to look back after suffering a career-ending injury.
- Adam Breneman's high school coach talked about just what makes the tight end special and what PSU fans can look forward to from him.
- Video: The top recruits in the nation -- including Christian Hackenberg -- talked about some of their craziest recruiting pitches.
- In our bi-weekly chat, we talked about Penn State football and recruiting for more than an hour. We also talked Penn State recruiting on the Big Ten podcast.
- Rashaun Smith may just be a high school freshman, but he already has quite a few scholarship offers -- including one from Penn State. He was the subject for this week's "5 Questions."
- As part of an ongoing series, we took a closer look at five Penn State commitments this week -- including Richy Anderson, Curtis Cothran, DaeSean Hamilton, Parker Cothren and Brendan Mahon.
- Adam Rittenberg wrote that the Big Ten's bowl lineup will change next year and could have a dramatically different look.
- Jack Seymour had scholarship offers from Ball State and Western Michigan, but turned those down to become a preferred walk-on at Penn State.
- We took a look back at the Class of 2009 to see just how good it really was. Overall, it fell short of expectations -- but it still wasn't a bust.
- Bill O'Brien was in Beaver County earlier this week and spoke with four juniors in Aliquippa (Pa.). 2014 RB Shai McKenzie, also from western Pennsylvania, received an offer from Penn State.
- We took a look at team needs, key commits and key targets as part of a signing day primer.
- Preferred walk-on Von Walker spoke about his goals and commitment to PSU at length in a Q&A.
