Penn State has made headlines several times this week with the commitment of four-star quarterback Sean Clifford and the announcement that player names would be removed from uniforms. The jersey decision, which coach James Franklin made as a nod to the program’s tradition, ended a three-year era that former coach Bill O’Brien started prior to the 2012 season.
Clifford represents the first verbal commitment in Penn State’s 2017 recruiting class. A four-star quarterback from St. Xavier (Ohio) High School, he is a pro-style passer with excellent running ability and a growing repertoire that is being sharpened at a powerhouse program at St. Xavier.
Ross Tucker, Dustin Hockensmith and Bob Flounders broke down Penn State’s decision to remove player names from jerseys and dissected Clifford’s game, among other topics, in a segment for the Keystone Kickoff Show this week.
