Penn State football snapshot profile: No. 56 Amin Vanover

·1 min read

Going into the 2022 football season, Nittany Lions Wire will be looking at each scholarship player listed on the Penn State roster.

Over the preseason, each profile will cover where the player is from, how recruiting websites rated them coming out of high school, and what role they will play for James Franklin this season.

The next player is defensive end Amin Vanover. Vanover has had limited snaps for Penn State in his two years with the teams thus far.

However, he looks to hopefully earn more time on the field in 2022, with even more competition, headlined by defensive end Dani Dennis-Sutton.

As mentioned, Vanover has had limited time on the field during his first two seasons with Penn State. He now has even more competition, with five-star defensive end Dani Dennis-Sutton.

With Arnold Ebiketie now in the NFL, Vanover could see some more playing time. He currently sits at three on the depth chart behind [autotag]Nick Tarburton[/autotag] and Chop Robinson.

The defensive line room at Penn State has plenty of unproven players, but there is some potential in there.
