With Jake Waters announcing he will attend Kansas State and not Penn State, the questions about the talent and abilities of quarterback Steven Bench have started to emerge.
Matt McGloin had an incredible season for the Nittany Lions in 2012, setting records and limiting turnovers. Now the time has come for Bench to step up.
With Bench taking over Bill O’Brien’s offense, it is important to remember the people that surround him. The Nittany Lions have significant talent returning to accompany the young starter in the 2013 campaign.
Most notably, Allen Robinson, Zach Zwinak and a lot of talented tight ends.
Allen Robinson had a record setting season in 2012 catching 77 passes for 1018 yards and 11 touchdowns. Without a doubt, he will be the number one target for Bench.
Robinson emerged as a star in the Penn State offense under O’Brien and should have continued success in 2013.
Along with Robinson, it’s important to mention running back Zach Zwinak.
