NittanyNation takes a look at this week's Penn State football news and what you might have missed:
- When Nyeem Wartman is ready to flip the switch, everybody knows. His high school coach, longtime friends and teammates talk about the kind of player and person the linebacker is.
- Linebacker/safety Mark Fossati might not be the biggest player in New Jersey, but he's one of the best athletes. Even ESPN Watch List CB Jabrill Peppers said he's the best linebacker he's ever faced. PSU wants the undersized Fossati at linebacker.
- ESPN's scouts released reports on all three of Penn State's commits . Troy Reeder was called a "program building player."
- Bill O'Brien said three-star LB signee Zayd Issah is off the team -- at least for now.
- Linebacker Brandon Bell discussed his expectations and improvement in a Q&A.
- We talked about Zayd Issah, football and recruiting in Friday's chat.
- CB Marcus Whitfield said his visit completely changed his outlook about PSU. DT Ryan Stout reflected on his college visits and said he especially liked PSU's campus.
- Safeties coach Anthony Midget addressed the media for the first time and said his transition to PSU has been relatively easy so far.
- Some Penn State players might have had a little too much fun on April Fools' Day.
- As part of an ongoing series, NittanyNation took a closer look at OT Jermaine Eluemunor and DT Thomas Holley .
- Run-on LB Brandon Smith talked about his increased role in the defense with PSU's limited depth in this week's edition of "5 Questions."
- 2015 DE Jashon Cornell received an offer from PSU and he said O'Brien left some nice compliments.
