Week in review: NittanyNation
By Josh Moyer
NittanyNation takes a look at this week's Penn State football news and what you might have missed:
Sophomore quarterback Steven Bench said it wasn't an easy decision, but
he's set to transfer from Penn State
. Brian Bennett offered
instant analysis on the move
, while Josh Moyer wrote that
PSU shouldn't panic quite yet
Coverage of the quarterback situation continued elsewhere. ESPN 150 quarterback Michael O'Connor said in this week's edition of "5 Questions" that
Bench's transfer piques his interest in PSU
. And, in this week's mailbag, we took
three questions on the QB situation
-- regarding walk-ons, extra scholarships and Christian Hackenberg.
Now that Tyler Ferguson is the lone scholarship QB on the roster -- at least until Hackenberg arrives -- it's definitely worth taking a look at this: Earlier this year, NittanyNation
retraced Ferguson's junior college season and polled half of the coaches
who squared off against him about his pros and cons.
Chris Godwin committed to PSU
. And it's no surprise ESPN's scouts think the Nittany Lions
have greatly improved their receivers
WR De'Andre Thompkins said in an in-depth Q&A that the
addition of another wideout isn't making him shy away
from his commitment.
Troy Apke's coach talked about what makes his receiver special and
said that Apke is just getting started
Thompkins' coach said his player
belongs on the same level as Mario Williams
, a former No. 1 overall pick in the NFL draft.
Our 2014 PSU spotlight series continued by taking a closer look at
DT Ricky Walker
Video: Nick Scott talked about his time at the
Blue-White Game and his commitment to PSU
. Scott also
impressed the scouts
during the Nike Football Training Camp in Washington, D.C.
Anthony Davis likes PSU a lot
, but his recruiting process has become a little harder since his head coach left.
Jerome Baker had a huge week
and picked up several offers, including one from Penn State.
Qadree Ollison is a fan of the Big Ten
and talks about his recent trip to Happy Valley.
Dareian Watkins updates his recruitment
and says he hopes to visit PSU.
