COMMITMENTS START OFF DAY:

Penn State has picked up commitments from 2017 OL Robert Martin (3-star) and PA native CJ Thorpe (4-star).

OUT:

QB Jake Zembiec, LB Brandon Bell, LB Nyeem Wartman-White, S Troy Apke, WR Irvin Charles, DB John Petrishen, DB Ayron Monroe, DL Kam Carter, OL Brendan Mahon, DL Parker Cothren 

FIRST QUARTER:

Second team offense can't move the ball with Tommy Stevens going 3-and-out losing two yards on the first run of the day. The first team offense has little issue though, moving the ball 70 yards in 2:53 thanks to 5-for-5 passing by McSorley and two nice catches by Mike Gesicki. Chris Godwin grabs a 15-yard pass for the score.

Stevens moves the ball a bit better with another chance on the field but the drive stalls. Long ball to Juwan Johnson isn't caught but ball was a beauty for 40+ yards.

McSorley gets his completion streak up to 8-for-8 before overthrowing Gesicki and getting intercepted by Amani Oruwariye. Stevens is eventually sacked in the endzone to make it 9-0 after the first quarter in favor of the first team offense. Evan Schwan blew past freshman Connor McGovern on the sack.

SECOND QUARTER:

First team offense continues to churn out the yards as McSorley finds Blacknall for a 22-yard score in the endzone to cap a 7-play 75 yard drive. McSorley is 13-of-14 for 155 yards and 2 scores. Only incompletion was an interception. Stevens has done little with the second team offense.

Mark Allen has been the star of the game so far with 8 carries for 49 yards but with quick burst and impressive movement. McSorley continues to throw the ball well going 18-of-19 for 217 yards and 3 TDs. The first team offense is up 23-0 with over a minute to go in the half.

HALFTIME.

First team offense leads 23-0 and has 252 yards of offense to 17 yards for the second team offense. Saeed Blacknall has 5 catches for 45 yards. Deanna Hamilton has 4 receptions for 67 yards. McSorley finishes the half 18-of-19 for 217 and 3 TDs and  INT.

Third Quarter:

Quarterbacks haven't switched teams, so McSorley will continue to get first unit reps and throws his fourth TD of the day to a wide open Thompkins for 35-yards. Tommy Stevens has his best drive of the day with several read option runs that gets the ball inside the 20 before the end of the quarter. 

Fourth Quarter:

Stevens can't convert on fourth down but gets put in with the first team at 10:11 to go in the game and goes 3-for-3 before Andre Robinson turns the corner and goes 28 yards for the score to put the blue squad up 37-0.
