Penn State Football fans; set your ALLARm, because you don’t want to miss this kid.
Slide over Steph Curry.
Grab some pine Patrick Mahomes.
There’s a new Baby-faced Assassin in town and his name is … okay that’s probably way over the top. But, when is it not a good time for a massive overdose of hyperbole in football’s off-season?
Here’s the real deal. If you drink from the Nittany Kool Aid, you can’t not be juiced for the next Big Man On Campus on a campus of many Big Men.
He is Drew Allar and barring an unforeseen event he will be QB1 in Happy Valley for the next couple of years. You can’t miss him if you’ve seen him and if he sees you, he won’t either.
Let’s just say that those are elite measurables. Ben Rothlisberger, Peyton Manning, Troy Aikman, Tom Brady, Jalen Hurts and
Patrick Mahomes don’t even measure up to Allar’s stature.
But size isn’t everything, in fact a big body is nothing if that human computer on top of it can’t process information and spit it out quickly. Another box checked for the young man with the
young face from Medina, Ohio.
The freshman thrower tossed four touchdown passes versus zero interceptions, while completing 35 of 60 passes for 344 yards last season.
“Drew Allar is the no.1 overall QB in the 2022 class. Allar is set to take over for Sean Clifford with a ton of experience around him. Allar is the type of high-upside passer who can push PSU into the discussion with Ohio State and Michigan in the Big Ten East.”
That’s pretty high praise to go along with a pretty high level discussion to be a part of considering both of the aforementioned programs made it to the college football semi-finals last year.
Let’s face it, the Nits haven’t sniffed a national championship in 30 years.
