Jaquan Brisker Returning To Penn State Football For 2021 Season

Penn State football’s 2021 secondary is now shaping up to be something special.

Senior safety Jaquan Brisker announced Monday he’s staying one more year in Happy Valley. Brisker is using the extra year of eligibility granted to all athletes by the NCAA this year.

Brisker had a bit of a breakout year in an otherwise up-and-down season for Penn State’s defense. He recorded 57 tackles, one interception, and four pass deflections. The safety had a career game on Senior Day against Michigan State, logging nine tackles and a pick.

The senior transferred to Penn State from Lackawanna Community College for his junior year, where he appeared in 13 games. He totaled 31 tackles and two interceptions his junior year.

Brisker joins veteran cornerback Tariq Castro-Fields as the only Nittany Lions to use their extra year of eligibility so far. After a strong senior season, Brisker can now show potential NFL scouts a little bit more of what he brings to the football field.

Castro-Fields and Brisker will join an exciting young secondary with rising stars like Joey Porter Jr. and transfer talents such as Johnny Dixon. Lamont Wade, Penn State’s other starting safety, has yet to announce a decision on his plans for 2021.
