Redshirt Report: Cornerback, Cornerback, Cornerback

Not all that much is changing at this point, but with Donovan Johnson and Trent Gordon battling injuries, it’s looks like Marquis Wilson will get his redshirt burned against Sparty.

But first: the list.

Again, not all that much to take away here. There’s a good chance that none of this will change until after the Rutgers game — that is, except for Wilson. James Franklin confirmed last night after practice that Wilson will continue to play this year.

So provided that Johnson and Gordon continue to be out, Penn State’s depth chart at cornerback is RS SR John Reid, JR Tariq Castro-Fields, FR Keaton Ellis, FR Marquis Wilson, and... RS SO DJ Brown or another redshirt burned in FR Joey Porter Jr? Obviously, injuries played a big part here, but man that gets young quickly. Having someone like — oh, I don’t know — Zech McPhearson would be nice right now. Darn you, portal!
