So far, roster news for the Penn St. Nittany Lions has been better than expected, with top freshman Eugene Lewis saying he plans to stay and no losses after one full day of NCAA transfer sanctions. Now perhaps the best possible news PSU could get: tight end Adam Breneman, the top recruit in new head coach Bill O'Brien's 2013 class, says he remains committed.
Besides being rated as the nation's best tight end recruit, Breneman has been considered the most important player in the class. His departure would put the entire collection into jeopardy.
With Silas Redd also on track to represent Penn State at Big Ten Media Days and no current players publicly expressing the desire to leave, the worst fears for Penn State's short-term football potential might not come true.
