Penn State safety Jaquan Brisker‘s decision to stay in college for a fifth year has paid dividends throughout 2021. Now, he’s being rewarded with postseason honors.

Since the Nittany Lions lost at Penn State to end the regular season, Brisker has been named unanimous first-team all-Big Ten, a second-team All-American by the AP, and now, a second-team All-American by the Sporting News.

The Gateway High School graduate started his college football career at Lackawanna Community College, where he played in 2017 and ’18. He transferred to Penn State for the 2019 season, where he helped the Nittany Lions to an 11-2 campaign and Cotton Bowl win.

Although Penn State regressed to a 4-5 record in 2020, Brisker progressed individually, being named first-team All America by Pro Football Focus. After deciding to come back for one more year in 2021, Brisker has been better than ever and is projected by some to go in the first round of the 2022 NFL draft.
