Ever since the Nittany Lions’ season ended with a victory in the Rose Bowl, starting quarterback Sean Clifford has been looking for his next home.
The veteran Penn State quarterback is indeed gaining professional interest, as Clifford will visit the New York Giants facility on Thursday, according to NFL reporter Matt Lombardo.

Clifford, after not receiving an invitation to participate in this year’s NFL Combine, had an opportunity to work out in front of professional scouts during Penn State’s Pro Day on March 24. Clifford had a Zoom meeting with the Denver Broncos and quarterbacks coach Davis Webb prior to the Pro Day.
In his five years with the Nittany Lions, Clifford started 46 career games, with his final contest being the Rose Bowl Victory over Utah to cap off a 10-2 season. He earned Rose Bowl MVP honors after throwing for 279 yards and two touchdowns in the victory.
The 2022-23 campaign was one of Clifford’s best statistically, as he completed 64% of his passes, totaling 2,822 yards, 24 touchdowns and seven interceptions, while also rushing for five scores.
Clifford closed his Penn State career with 10,661 passing yards, 86 touchdowns and 31 interceptions. He rushed for an additional 1,073 yards and 15 scores. The Nittany Lions earned their second 10-win season with Clifford as quarterback, joining 2019.
