Only Ellison Jordan Until Penn State Football 2017

42 days!

Jordan card

Exactly six weeks from today, we will be enjoying the return of Penn State football when the Nittany Lions take on Akron. For now though, let’s give a shout-out to Ellison Jordan, who currently rocks the #42 jersey (which similar to the #11 jersey, is now a sacred one on the Penn State roster). As a former 4-star recruit out of Upper Marlboro, MD, PSU won out over Maryland for his services. After redshirting last season, the 6-foot 285-pound defensive tackle will have an opportunity to try and crack the rotation on the defensive line.

Given Sean Spencer’s propensity to rotate quite a bit on the D-line in order to keep his players fresh, and to give the younger talent a chance to earn some quality playing experience, don’t be surprised to see that #42 jersey play some non-trivial snaps this season.
