Penn State Football’s Rasheed Walker Returning For 2021 Season

Penn State football’s offensive line is getting a big piece back for next season.

Left tackle Rasheed Walker announced Tuesday night via his Twitter account that he’s returning to Penn State for the 2021 season.

Walker will stay in Happy Valley for his fourth season after some speculation that he may declare for the 2021 NFL Draft. Back in May, Pro Football Network ranked Walker as the fourth-best offensive tackle prospect for the 2021 draft.

The 6’6″, 310-pounder has been an anchor for the Nittany Lions’ offensive line over the past two seasons, starting every game at left tackle (22 starts). Additionally, Walker appeared in four games for Penn State during his true freshman season in 2018.

Walker’s stellar play during his 2020 campaign earned him third-team All-Big Ten honors from the media, as well as an honorable mention from the conference’s coaches.

Walker’s return is significant for the Nittany Lions, as two starters on the offensive line — Will Fries and Michal Menet — have already announced that they’re not coming back for another season. Additionally, guard CJ Thorpe entered the NCAA transfer portal as a graduate transfer less than a week ago.
