**Senior cornerback Tariq Castro-Fields announced tonight that he will return to Penn State for one more year, taking advantage of the NCAA rule allowing players an extra year of eligibility.
Where the heart is willing, it will find a thousand ways. A firm believer in everything having its season. All in, See you inna Fall.. 🖤 pic.twitter.com/jPXwoo2L1q

Castro Fields has played 40 games over the past four years, but he missed the final six games of this season with an injury that was never revealed
His return next season will help bolster the defense, which is losing five starters, including all-conference defensive ends Shaka Toney and Jayson Oweh.
Joey Porter Jr. is PSU’s other starting cornerback, and the Lions landed transfer John Dixon from South Carolina last week.
This is from Castro-Fields’ PSU bio page:
Update: 6:50 p.m.
Penn State’s home game against No. 6 Wisconsin scheduled for Sunday at noon has been postponed, the schools announced Saturday evening.
From PSU’s press release:
UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. – The Penn State men’s basketball game vs. Wisconsin, scheduled for Sunday, Jan. 3, has been postponed. The decision was mutually agreed upon out of an abundance of caution surrounding the health and safety of the participants, and the institutions will work with the Big Ten Conference to identify rescheduling options.
Penn State interim coach Jim Ferry spoke to reporters Saturday afternoon at 2 to preview the Wisconsin game. He gave no indication that plans had changed about the game, so the decision to postpone appears to have not come until the early evening.
No game tomorrow. Not sure what this specific “abundance of caution” situation is, but really, I’m all for postponing any games.
College basketball needs March. It doesn’t really need early January games. https://t.co/UMHpIIvIxq
