Folks, we are just two days away from Penn State football.

Rocking number 2 this fall for the Nittany Lions will be sophomore cornerback, and State College native, Keaton Ellis. As a true freshman last fall Ellis appeared in all 13 games, including his first career start, for the Nittany Lions, making an impact both on defense and on special teams.

Ellis finished his freshman campaign with 14 tackles, 3 forced fumbles, 2 pass breakups, and a fumble recovery. While Ellis will not start at cornerback this fall, mostly due to a terrific offseason from fellow second-year cornerback Joey Porter Jr., he will still play a big role in Brent Pry’s defense. Nittany Lions will see plenty of Ellis on the field this fall at cornerback, and he will likely be a special teams stalwart for the Nittany Lions as well.

The long awaited start to the 2020 season is in sight.
