The Nittany Lions have released their depth chart for this weekend's clash with Ohio State.


Pos. First Team Second Team Third Team
QB Sean Clifford Will Levis Ta'Quon Roberson OR Michael Johnson Jr.
RB Journey Brown OR Noah Cain OR Devyn Ford OR Ricky Slade - -
WR-X Dan Chisena Daniel George Cam Sullivan-Brown
WR-H Jahan Dotson Justin Shorter Weston Carr
WR-Z KJ Hamler Mac Hippenhammer Isaac Lutz
TE/H Pat Freiermuth Nick Bowers Zack Kuntz, Brenton Strange
LT Rasheed Walker Des Holmes Bryce Effner
LG Steven Gonzalez  Mike Miranda Bryce Effner
C Michal Menet Mike Miranda Hunter Kelly
RG CJ Thorpe OR Mike Miranda Anthony Whigan -
RT Will Fries Des Holmes Caedan Wallace


  • After back to back 100-yard games, Journey Brown remains the first name to appear on the running back list. Noah Cain still appears on the depth chart, despite not playing since Michigan State.
  • Dan Chisena got the start at the X-receiver last week. Shorter is now listed as the backup to Jahan Dotson's H-receiver. The former five-star prospect struggled against the Gophers, and was not much of a factor in the Indiana victory.
  • KJ Hamler is listed despite leaving the Indiana game with an injury. It's unknown if he will be ready to go, but this is a good start.


Pos. First Team Second Team Reserves
DE Shaka Toney   Jayson Oweh Adisa Isaac
1-DT Antonio Shelton PJ Mustipher Judge Culpepper
3-DT Robert Windsor Fred Hansard Damion Barber
DE Yetur Gross-Matos Shane Simmons Daniel Joseph
SLB Cam Brown Brandon Smith OR Charlie Katshir -
MLB Jan Johnson Ellis Brooks Jesse Luketa
WLB Micah Parsons Jesse Luketa Lance Dixon
CB John Reid Marquis Wilson OR Trent Gordon -
S Lamont Wade Jaquan Brisker Drew Hartlaub
S Garrett Taylor Jonathan Sutherland CJ Holmes
CB Tariq Castro-Fields Keaton Ellis DJ Brown


  • Trent Gordon and Marquis Wilson are once again separated by an "or". The former has missed the last two weeks with an injury but did warm-up ahead of the Indiana game.
