With spring ball officially in the books all around the country, teams are starting to find their identity. Players have a better idea of their roles, guys are starting to transfer, and new systems have already begun being put into place.
After being hit hard by the Transfer Portal, the Nittany Lions are going to look a lot different than we thought they would when the season ended. That much attrition has changed the way some experts see the Nittany Lions heading into 2019. Let's take a look at where Penn State fell in some Post-Spring Top 25 polls.
This seems just right. When you factor in all the talent they lost and all the new faces that are coming in, the 10-15 range is about where they should be.
Athletic writer Stewart Mandel has the Nittany Lions at No. 9, the highest of any ranking on this list.
Let's follow the highest ranking with the lowest one, shall we? They cite losing Stevens as the main factor for the drop from the No. 19 slot they had them at earlier in the offseason. 21 feels astonishingly low, but USA Today was not high on Penn State prior to Stevens transferring.
Like USA Today, CBS' main concerns stem from Stevens leaving. I just have a hard time seeing them ranked behind the likes of Army and Nebraska.
Where would you have Penn State ranked? Let us know in the comments!
