Former Penn State LB Nyeem Wartman-White To Join Mississippi State As Defensive GA

Former Penn State linebacker Nyeem Wartman-White will work as a defensive graduate assistant at Mississippi State under new head coach and former Penn State assistant Joe Moorhead, according to his Twitter page.

Wartman-White is just one of many former Penn Staters relocating to Starkville along with Moorhead. Bob Shoop joined his staff as the defensive coordinator after working with Tennessee’s football program for two seasons and running backs coach Charles Huff left to fill the same role for Moorhead. Wartman-White is the first former player of Moorhead’s to join him.

During his Penn State career, Wartman-White had the potential to become one of college football’s premier linebackers, but injuries forced him to miss 23 games over the final two seasons of his career. After being named to the Butkus Award preseason watch list in 2016, the Philadelphia native suffered a season-ending injury against Temple. As a sophomore, he recorded 75 tackles, 3.5 tackles-for-loss, and an interception.
