Penn State Football: Manny Bowen Set To Rejoin Nittany Lions

on August 04, 2018 12:05 PM

Penn State's linebacker corps received a big boost at the start of training camp as the program announced the return of middle linebacker Manny Bowen.

Bowen, played in nine games during the 2017-18 season racking up 51 tackles. The now senior linebacker missed the Rose Bowl at the conclusion of the 2016-17 season due to a violation of team rules and was once against suspended and eventually removed from the team for a similar offense late in 2017-18.

The move is an immediate impact to a Penn State linebacking unit that is looking to replace Jason Cabinda at the middle linebacker spot and in general lacks depth and experience across the board. Freshman Micah Parsons recently moved to outside linebacker during spring practice.

James Franklin is set to speak to the media later today during the team's media day session.
