Bob Shoop’s Son Tyler To Walk On At Penn State

Tyler Shoop, the son of Penn State defensive coordinator Bob Shoop, will soon play for his dad’s Nittany Lions as a preferred walk-on, according to Lions247.

A wide receiver from Father Ryan High School in Nashville, Tyler tweeted the news on Saturday:

During his senior season at Father Ryan, the younger Shoop had 29 catches for 218 yards and three touchdowns. He didn’t receive any star ratings from the major recruiting websites. After an offseason filled with speculation about Bob Shoop’s future at Penn State, it’s certainly reassuring that the Shoop tenure at Penn State is now a family affair.

According to Fight On State, James Franklin added two more walk-ons over the weekend:

Shorts is a two-star athlete who turned down an offer from FCS Central Connecticut State. Johnson, originally committed to Akron, can play on both sides of the ball.
