 Joey Porter Jr., Penn State, Player News


  Defensive back Joey Porter, who signed with Penn State in 2019 as the No. 324 prospect nationally and No. 33 cornerback in the 247Sports Composite, is already moving up boards as a potential first-round pick. The 6-foot-2 cornerback has great length for the position and the size to compete with outside receivers in the NFL. He is very solid around the ball and had 51 tackles in 2021, which is impressive for an outside cornerback prospect. - Penn State Football

  Penn State now has an exclusive deal with a company for both physical and digital trading cards. Fanatics Collectibles and Topps, which was recently acquired by Fanatics, announced deals with several universities that include both exclusive and non-exclusive co-branded trading card products, incorporating official university trademarks and featuring current student-athletes and former athletes playing in the NFL, NBA and MLB, according to a release.

Penn State is one of those universities, alongside Alabama, Georgia, Kansas, Kentucky, Oregon, Texas A&M and others. The deal will take effect between 2023 and 2025. Later this year, Topps will also begin a scaled, non-exclusive program to design, manufacture and distribute trading cards showcasing current college football and basketball student-athletes for those schools and over 100 others. The deal was announced just a day after Penn State head coach James Franklin said the university needs to keep pace with other schools when it comes to NIL. - Centre Times

  The Big Ten announced three kickoff times for Penn State football Thursday afternoon after the Nittany Lions announced one Wednesday morning. The Nittany Lions will play the Purdue Boilermakers on the road Sept. 1 - a Thursday - at 8 p.m. in their season opener, which will air on Fox. They'll then take on the Ohio Bobcats at noon Sept. 10, which will air on ABC. Their homecoming game - an Oct. 22 matchup with the Minnesota Golden Gophers - will kick off at 7:30 p.m and air on a to be determined network. The three announcements come just over 24 hours after it was announced they'll play the Auburn Tigers at 3:30 p.m. on Sept. 17. That game will air on CBS, the first time Penn State has played on the network in 22 years. Those four games are the only ones of the NIttany Lions' 12 that have a scheduled kickoff time. - Centre Times

  Early 2023 first round mock drafts have begun to roll in and this is the name that constantly comes up. Penn State's Porter is the ideal size for an NFL cornerback and has the athleticism to hang with the best receivers in football. His next major test will be proving he can cover consistently without committing penalties. Doing that should put him firmly in the first round of next year's draft. - Tribune Review

  While Castro-Fields brings leadership and experience, it's Porter who has some of the most upside on the roster. He's played in 12 games of a possible 22 since he enrolled prior to the 2019 season, starting in eight of them, all of which came in the 2020 season. He has the pedigree to be an NFL-caliber talent with his dad - Joey Sr. - playing linebacker in the NFL for 13 seasons. The younger Porter has the build to eventually grow into a safety, but his athletic prowess and ability on the outside should keep him at corner for the foreseeable future.

He's a big, athletic corner at 6-foot-2, 195 pounds and he uses every bit of his size to his advantage. He muscles up against big wide receivers, knocking them off their route and beating them in 1-on-1 jump ball situations. He uses his hands well at the line of scrimmage and doesn't get beat often when he's in press coverage. Once receivers are into their routes, Porter sticks to them and doesn't allow for much separation. Had Castro-Fields left for the 2021 NFL Draft, it's safe to say Penn State would've been fine at corner. With Porter as the No. 2 to the senior, the unit is in even better shape at the top. - Centre Times

  After appearing in only four games last season, Porter Jr. appears to be in the mix to be one of Penn State's top reserves at cornerback. Tariq Castro-Fields and Keaton Ellis are projected as the starters, and Porter is competing with Marquis Wilson for playing time. The son of Joey Porter, the former Steelers linebacker and coach, Porter Jr. credited a variety of individuals in helping him progress into his second season. "A lot of people helped me," Porter Jr. said. "My father helped me to understand the playbook. The corner room helped me a lot. Castro-Fields, the leader of the corner room, he showed me the ins and outs. (Assistant head coach Terry Smith), (graduate assistant V'Angelo Bentley), they all played a big part helping me understand and know the defense so when I'm out there, I know what I'm doing."

Of course, Porter Jr. has a considerable resource in his father, a Pro Bowler with the Steelers in the 2000s who helped them win Super Bowl XL. "I still watch film with him when I have the time," Porter Jr. said. "I sent him some of my stuff that I like or that I want him to watch. It's been great. He always gives me things that I have to work on on or off the field. It's a plus that some player or some people don't get to have. And I take advantage of that to the extent that I can." - Tribune Review
