Drew Allar Working Out With … Michigan Tight End?

Projected Penn State Football starting quarterback Drew Allar finished up spring practice by going 19 for 30 for 202 yards and a touchdown during the Nittany Lions‘ Blue-White Game. However, the work for Allar didn’t end with spring practice.

As has been Allar’s routine, Allar returned home to Ohio to work with Brad Maendler of QB Excelerate, whom Drew has worked with for over 3 years.

Allar’s most recent workout had a surprising player on the opposite side, Michigan tight end AJ Barner.

While the two seemed to have good rapport during the workout in the video above, the two will soon be enemies on the field once the season begins in the fall.

Although Penn State fans may not be pleased with the workout partner chosen, the fans will be pleased with Drew Allar’s continuous work on his touch and accuracy.

Allar will continue to work through the summer before camp starts when he will look to lock down the QB1 job for the fall and handle Penn State’s lofty expectations for 2023.
