Dave Revsine, Howard Griffith, and Gerry DiNardo of the Big Ten Network continued their tour of the Big Ten football preseason camps with a stop in Happy Valley. As always, the crew shared some short clips on Twitter.

The crew also shared their thoughts after seeing a full practice.

Some of the main takeaways...

  • DiNardo said the defense was as good as advertised. They can run, they’re strong, and they are very well coached. As he put it, the defense is a “very clear complete package.”
  • Griffith echoed those sentiments, saying that the length and speed stood out. He said it’s a young team, but that the program is at a point where it’s just a reload. The talent is there.
  • On the quarterbacks, DiNardo said that it was close between Sean Clifford and Will Levis, and based on the practice he saw, he wouldn’t give an edge to either one.

Last but not least, here’s interviews with Yetur Gross-Matos, Micah Parsons, KJ Hamler, Pat Freiermuth, and of course, James Franklin.

Plus, a mic’d up session with safeties coach Tim Banks and offensive line coach Matt Limegrover.
