Every weekday, as part of an ongoing series, NittanyNation will take a closer look at a Penn State walk-on.

Vitals: Running back Adam Geiger, Camp Hill (Pa.) Trinity, 5-foot-11, 192 pounds.

Picked Penn State over: D-II schools Shippensburg, West Chester and IUP. (He took the PSU walk-on invitation before his official visits to those schools and wasn't sure if he'd receive scholarship help.)

Why he picked PSU: He was looking at several different schools, but his mind kept going back to PSU. Playing for a major D-I program was too big an opportunity to turn down, and the academics made him feel a lot better about the decision.

Drive Through: What's Wrong With The Big Ten?
Adam Rittenberg explains what's wrong with the Big Ten conference and whether or not the conference is doing anything to reverse its downward trajectory.
