WATCH: Mitchell Tinsley opens Penn State spring game scoring with TD

·1 min read

Penn State’s offense has done a good job of getting some new faces on the roster involved early on in the Blue-White s[spring game. After opening the afternoon’s scrimmage with a handoff to five-star running back Nick Singleton for a two-point conversion, the first full offensive series was capped by the newest wide receiver opening the scoring.

Sean Clifford completed a pass to the left side to Mitchell Tinsley, a transfer from Western Kentucky, and Tinsley took advantage of some solid blocking in front of him to run his way to the end zone for the first official score of the afternoon.

Tinsley joined Penn State from the transfer portal after being a solid player at Western Kentucky. Tinsley is wearing the No. 5 that was previously worn by Jahan Dotson, who is hoping to be a first-round draft pick in next week’s NFL draft. It may be too much to ask Tinsley to replace everything Dotson managed to bring to the offense, but there is a good chance Tinsley will have a terrific impact on the offense in the fall.
