Penn State football doesn’t make its true freshmen players available to the media.
The school’s Rose Bowl Media Day session featured the whole Penn State whole team, freshmen players included, giving reporters a chance to talk with Drew Allar, Nick Singleton, Kaytron Allen, Abdul Carter and others for the first time since they became Nittany Lions.
Singleton, Allen and Carter all played in the team’s 35-31 season-opening win at Purdue, and they were supposed to.
The former five-star true freshman from Medina, Ohio, started the game on the bench but briefly came relieved Sean Clifford on the team’s first drive of the second half.
Quite a way to debut.
“It was definitely a surreal experience to be able to go in that type of game” Allar told reporters. “So I think it just really benefitted me and just how much experience I gained from that.”
Hear from those four, plus a NSN 1-on-1 with DL Dani Dennis-Sutton, here.
