Penn State head coach James Franklin and offensive coordinator Mike Yurcich didn’t want to wait very long to give fans their first glimpse of five-star running back Nick Singleton in the Blue-White Game on Saturday afternoon. The first play of the afternoon was a simple handoff to one of the prizes of the recent Class of 2022.
Penn State opened the spring session with a few quick two-point conversion attempts before beginning its modified scoring system for the rest of the afternoon. Returning starting quarterback Sean Clifford opened the session with a simple handoff to Singleton from the two-point yard line, and Singleton delivered with an easy run up the middle for a successful two-point conversion, but without the benefit of any points actually being rewarded. But just the image of the expected starting quarterback handing off to the next big-time running back was fun to enjoy at the start of the day.
Penn State’s next two-point conversion play saw Christian Veilleux complete a pass to the endzone to Jaden Dottin, which was followed by some field goal attempts by the kickers on the roster. When the offense-vs-defense portion of the scrimmage officially started, Clifford returned to the field with Keyvone Lee lining up in the backfield instead of Singleton.
