Penn State outside linebacker Troy Reeder, who started 11 games in 2015 as a redshirt freshman, confirmed this afternoon his intent to transfer to his home state to play his final three years at the University of Delaware. Because Delaware is an FCS school, Reeder will be immediately eligible to play.
Congratulations to Leah, who received her final treatment Friday. The daughter of former Penn State DT Devon Still, who had previously been diagnosed with Stage 4 Pediatric cancer, was officially declared cancer-free on December 1st.
The trio, all of whom played major roles in the Nittany Lions' National Championship victory, will be coveted by many teams.
Though the mock draft universe is smaller than in other sports, Rodriguez and Weber have been predicted as anywhere from first through third rounders, and Eckerstrom will certainly catch on somewhere. All three are excellent prospects.
Former Penn State and Cincinnati Bengals defensive tackle Devon Still has signed a future/reserve contract with the Houston Texans. Still, who was the 2011 Big Ten Defensive Player of the Year, was a second round pick in the 2012 NFL Draft by the Bengals. The Texans have a Penn State connection in head coach Bill O'Brien, though Still never played for O'Brien during his time as a Nittany Lion.
Still also mentioned his daughter Leah in his tweet announcing his deal. Leah is currently receiving treatment while in remission after a battle with cancer that began in the summer of 2014. The father and daughter combo received the Jimmy V Award for perseverance at this past summer's ESPY Awards.
Congratulations and good luck to Devon!
LeVert, who is averaging 17 points, five rebounds and five assists on the year, is a big loss for Michigan but the Wolverines still have plenty of offensive firepower. Can Penn State take advantage (Noon ET, Big Ten Network)?
