    Still a travesty Hawk didn't win the Butkus award despite being the best defensive player in the country in 2005. Hell, he even finished 5 in Heisman voting.

    Penn State's projected depth chart at LB next season.

    Well, at least in their own delusional way they are preparing for some rough sledding at what once was LB U.

    Here's their depth:


    Mike Hull, rJR
    4-star #7 OLB on Rivals
    5-star #1 MLB on Scout

    Zayd Issah, FR
    3-star no rating ATH on Rivals
    4-star #18 OLB on Scout


    Glenn Carson, SR
    4-star #13 ILB on Rivals
    4-star #7 MLB on Scout

    Brandon Bell, FR
    3-star #42 ILB on Rivals
    3-star #17 MLB on Scout


    Nyeem Wartman, SO
    3-star #35 OLB on Rivals
    3-star #32 OLB on Scout

    Ben Kline rSO
    3-star #27 ILB on Rivals
    3-star #24 OLB on Scout

    Gary Wooten, rFR
    3-star #75 OLB on Rivals
    NR NR on Scout

    Those 7 players are the only LBs they have on the entire team.

    But have no fear! they may or may not scrape the bottom of the barrel for another LB in the 2013 class to help out with depth.


    Yes, those super high quality players PSU has signed over the past two recruiting classes at LB will allow them to be selective and only target the best of the best in 2014. :lol:

    Clearly LB U is heading to good places. :slappy:

    Move over Penn State. Ohio State is the new “Linebacker U” -- and the Buckeyes claimed the title in a blowout. In many of these positional rankings, only a handful of points separate first and second place. At linebacker, the Buckeyes finished nearly 50 points ahead of second-place Alabama. But when your players stockpile national awards and All-America honors and then many more go on to become NFL draft picks, you put your program in position to rank at the top of this list. Players such asA.J. Hawk, James Laurinaitis and most recently Ryan Shazier have done that in Columbus.

    Cont'd ...
