STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) - A starting quarterback race won't hinder the development of Penn State's offense this spring, especially not with the experience elsewhere on the field.
Like Big Ten-leading receiver Allen Robinson. Or the cadre of tall, athletic tight ends led by Kyle Carter.
The successor to 2012 quarterback Matt McGloin - whether it's Steven Bench, Tyler Ferguson or incoming freshman Christian Hackenberg - may be the guy who can best keep up with the rest of the offense come fall.
Coach Bill O'Brien says he's expanded the playbook during spring practice even with the quarterback competition in part because the offense is comprised primarily of veterans.
O'Brien has also added new wrinkles because the rest of the Big Ten now has a year of film on the revamped Penn State attack.
