We’re officially less than two weeks until the start of the 2016 Penn State football season. And if my fearless predictions turn out to be correct, it will be a big year for Saeed Blacknall.

Blacknall began playing immediately as a true freshman in 2014 and is one of the more experienced players on offense. While he’s shown big play ability (Blacknall averaged a staggering 31.0 yards per reception in 2015), he has yet to find consistency on a weekly basis. After catching a total of 18 passes for 343 yards and two touchdowns in his first two seasons at Penn State, Blacknall is expected by many to have a breakout season this fall. He has reportedly found his focus and rhythm as a Big Ten receiver, and seems to be fitting in well with Joe Moorhead’s offense. With excellent size and athleticism, Blacknall should become a main target for Penn State’s first-year quarterback as he looks to become a major part of the offense as a junior.

Only 13 more days, folks!
