If you haven't noticed, we here at Roar Lions Roar enjoy fun little nicknames and fun sayings (tuddies, Rich Home Saquon, etc.). So it overjoyed us as a staff when Penn State Football released a video of most of the new recruits sharing their nicknames from high school.
Here's a breakdown of what all of the 2017 commits are used to being called, so you can root for them appropriately in the future.
C.J. Thorpe- Savage
Jonathan Sutherland- Jur (????)
Sean Clifford- Cliff
Yetur Matos- Big Yee
Brailyn Franklin- Deuce, Beast Mode, Wild Thing, Batman
Fred Hansard- Big Fred
Lamont Wade- Honcho
D.J. Brown- Money Brown
Mac Hippenhammer- Spiffy
Journey Brown- JB, Boogie
Brelin Faison-Walden- Bray, Novacane, Bray Bray
Damion Barber- Ice Man, Booga (?), Dame
Ellis Brooks- EB, Ell
K.J. Hamler- Mooka, The Human Joystick
My personal favorites are The Human Joystick, Honcho, and Booga (or is it Booger). But that's just me. Which ones do you like best? Sound off in the comments.
