Penn State Football No. 11 In ESPN’s Future Quarterback Power Rankings

With a No. 6 2022 recruiting ranking to boot, Penn State football certainly has a bright future ahead. Now, national media is starting to take notice.

The Nittany Lions recently checked in at No. 11 among ESPN’s top 25 future quarterback room power rankings, which looks mainly at the next three seasons. This is a big jump for Mike Yurcich’s group, which did not appear in the rankings at all last year.

ESPN’s Adam Rittenberg praised Sean Clifford’s improvement last season and said he, at times, “carried” the offense as the run game stalled. However, he didn’t forget about the guys behind Penn State’s veteran gunslinger.

“The real reason for the [tepid] reaction to Clifford is Drew Allar, the most anticipated Penn State quarterback recruit since Christian Hackenberg,” Rittenberg wrote. “He should lead the PSU offense in 2023 and 2024, and possibly sooner. Don’t forget about Christian Veilleux, who led Penn State to a win over Rutgers last year.”

Penn State is one of four Big Ten schools on the list, joining Ohio State (No. 1), Michigan (No. 10), and Michigan State (No. 15). The top-ranked Buckeyes are sitting pretty largely thanks to young star CJ Stroud.

We’ll likely see Allar and his classmate, Beau Pribula, for the first time at Penn State’s Blue-White game, which will kick off at 2 p.m. on April 23. If you can’t make it to Happy Valley yourself, you can catch the action on the Big Ten Network.
