College Football News Preview 2020: Top Penn State Nittany Lions Players
Best Penn State Nittany Lions Offensive Player
TE Pat Freiermuth, Jr.
The 6-5, 259-pound All-Big Ten star caught 43 passes for 507 yard sand seven touchdowns, doing a great job of working his way open down the middle and using his big frame to be a matchup nightmare.
He caught three touchdown passes in the win over Michigan State, and gave Minnesota fits with seven catches for 101 yards. He’s a next-level starter who gets one more year in the Nittany Lion attack – expect him to be an even bigger part of the game plan.

3. QB Sean Clifford, Sr.
4. OT Will Fries, Sr.
5. C Michal Menet, Sr.
Best Penn State Nittany Lions Defensive Player
DE Shaka Toney, Sr.
Can Toney be the guy who makes up for the loss of Micah Parsons in the backfield?
The 6-3, 243-pound senior is quick off the ball and good at closing, but now he has to do even more. He made 41 tackles with 6.5 sacks and came up with constant pressure on the quarterback, but he won’t be along. The rest of the front seven should do its part, but it’ll be that much harder without Parsons.

4. LB Ellis Brooks, Sr.
5. DT PJ Mustipher, Jr.
