LOS ANGELES, C.A.— Penn State is in California for the Rose Bowl, and Nittany Sports Now is capturing some sights and sounds.
NSN got to Cali for the media’s viewing window into Penn State’s practice Thursday afternoon at the Dignity Health Sports Park in Carson, California.
Some players who weren’t fixtures during the regular season participated in practice.
Running back Keyvone Lee, who hasn’t played since Oct. 15 at Michigan, was practicing. Defensive lineman Smith Vilbert, who didn’t play at all this season, was also active. This shouldn’t come as a surprise for Penn State fans. Penn State coach James Franklin said at the team’s bowl media day Dec. 18 that Lee should be good to go for the Rose Bowl and said the same about Vlibert Dec. 28 before a small group of reporters at Disneyland. Assuming both are active against Utah Jan. 2, they’ll add depth to their respective position groups.
As for what NSN captured Thursday, quarterbacks Sean Clifford, Drew Allar and Beau Pribula put in work. Christian Veilleux is transferring to Pitt, which means the true freshman Pribula is now Penn State’s No. 3 QB. NSN also caught Penn State’s tight ends and receivers putting in work. Here’s the first Penn State Sights and Sounds: Rose Bowl edition. NSN will also be on hand for Friday’s viewing window.
