3. OT Chasz Wright, 6’7″/321

Wright has an advantage over many of the other newcomers with enrolling in January. Wright will not start, but will certainly play a role on the line this upcoming year. His combination of size (6’7″/321 pounds) and strength will give him an early shot at seeing the field as a true freshman.

2. WR Chris Godwin- 6’2″/210

Godwin, an Under Armour All-American, has the opportunity to get some reps alongside Lewis and fellow incoming wideout DeAndre Thompkins. Godwin will be competing with junior Matt Zanellato for the other starting spot opposite Geno Lewis. He shows a mature frame (210 pounds) and has the route-running ability of an experienced player. We are looking at a talented group of receivers for Penn State.

1. WR DeAndre Thompkins- 5’11″/173

Speed, speed and more speed, that’s what Thompkins brings to Penn State. The transfer of Richy Anderson will give Thompkins the full ability to grab the starting slot position this summer. His size makes him a perfect fit for the slot and he also has the ability to return kicks. It is still very early, but I could see him as a Derrick Williams-type of player at PSU.
