STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) - Penn State is developing a lot of options for a team that's being forced to whittle down scholarship depth.
A youth movement on display at the Blue-White scrimmage over the weekend was the first sign of new contributors come fall.
Redshirt freshman Austin Johnson, vying to replace standout tackle Jordan Hill, had two sacks. Another redshirt, tight end Brent Wilkerson, caught a touchdown and sought to prove he was ready to join a top-heavy position.
A third redshirt freshman, Akeel Lynch, ran for 87 yards and showed he could be another backfield contributor for coach Bill O'Brien.
It was just a spring practice game, with a scaled-down playbook and hitting. But the team appears to be in better shape after gaining a year of experience in O'Brien's systems.
