Jordan Hill Staying At Penn State, According To Report

The Penn State football roster is currently in a state of flux while players determine whether they want to stick with the program or take advantage of the NCAA's special transfer protocols following the sanctions placed on the school. One player who is committed to staying with the team is senior nose tackle Jordan Hill, reports the Patriot-News.

As a junior, Hill amassed 59 total tackles, eight tackles for a loss and 3.5 sacks. With Devon Still now in the NFL, Hill is one of the leaders both on and off the field for Penn State.

For the moment, the only player that is reported to be transferring is redshirt freshman Ryan Nowicki. The right tackle is supposedly heading to the Illinois Fighting Illini. Only one recruit that had previously verbally committed to the Nittany Lions has changed his destination at this point: Ross Douglas has opted to join the Michigan Wolverines in 2013.

Running back Silas Redd has been connected to the USC Trojans in the last few days, but no decision has yet been reached.
