Penn State Defensive Tackle Hakeem Beamon ‘Unavailable’ For Rest Of Season

Penn State football will be without one of its big boys up front for the rest of the season.

Head coach James Franklin said after practice Wednesday that defensive tackle Hakeem Beamon will be “unavailable” for the rest of the season. For now, it’s unclear exactly why Beamon will be sidelined for the remainder of the year.

“He’ll be unavailable this week and this season,” Franklin said. “Hakeem loves football. So, in practice, he’s always good because he loves to play football. But he will be unavailable this week, and he will be unavailable for the season.”

Before being labeled “unavailable” by Franklin for the rest of the season, Beamon had been a constant on Penn State’s scout team over the past couple of weeks, even earning a spot on the team’s ‘D-Squad Players of the Week’ for Auburn.

Beamon’s work ethic and skills have stood out to starting right tackle Caedan Wallace.

“Hakeem’s a great d-lineman,” Wallace said after practice Wednesday. “It’s just really nice — I was talking to him earlier over there — His Rolodex of techniques is amazing, so just being able to work with him on and off the field with techniques is pretty cool.”

Beamon appeared in 11 games for the Nittany Lions between 2019 and 2020. He totaled nine tackles, including 1.5 for a loss, over that span. He didn’t appear in a game for Penn State through its first four matchups this fall.
