OL Caedan Wallace Returning to PSU Next Season

PASADENA, C.A.— PSU OL Caedan Wallace is returning to the team in 2023, he told reporters Saturday at the school’s Rose Bowl Media Day in Pasadena.

Wallace, who was a four-star recruit out of the Hun School of Princeton in New Jersey, has been with the program since the 2019 season and has been a regular starter at right tackle for the past three years.

This past season, he started the team’s first seven games before getting hurt in the White Out win over Minnesota Oct. 23.

Wallace didn’t play in Penn State’s last five regular season games due to the injury, but coach James Franklin said at the team’s bowl media day Dec. 18 at Beaver Stadium that he “planned” on having Wallace, as well as left tackle Olu Fashanu and running back Keyvone Lee, available to play in the Rose Bowl against Utah Jan. 2. Like Wallace, Fashanu is returning to PSU next season, which is big for the OL. Fashanu’s announcement came as much more of a surprise because, until he told the football world he was staying in school, many projected Fashanu as a top 10 2023 NFL Draft pick. Wallace isn’t as acclaimed as Fashanu, but his return is still significant. With the exception of center Juice Scruggs, who announced his intent to declare for the draft two days before Christmas, Penn State isn’t officially losing any offensive linemen.

Before Fashanu and Wallace made their announcements, guard Hunter Nourzad said he was staying at Penn State for the 2023 season back in November leading up to the team’s game at Maryland Nov. 12.
