Ok Nittany Lion fans. Inhale. Exhale. Inhale. Exhale. It's all good.
Dan Connor announced on Friday he will return for his senior year.
"We gave it some thought and explored options, but it wasn't what I wanted right now," Connor said. "This team is very close to getting some things done and I want to help make it happen. If things work out right, the NFL opportunity will be there. You're only a college senior once. I'm looking forward to next season."
I'm not too surprised by this. Everything I saw and read said the NFL scouts would like to see DC put on another 10-15 lbs and see if he can maintain his speed. Look for him to hit the weight room hard this off season much like Poz did last year.
Oh happy day. This is great news indeed. With Connor coming back I have all the confidence in the world the Penn State defense will be fine.
