  Draft Scout by Conference

  Penn State's redshirt junior quarterback Sean Clifford is no stranger to change. In his four years with the Nittany Lions, he's had three different offensive coordinators/quarterbacks coaches. Now headed into his second season as the presumed starter, he'll have a new coach in former Minnesota OC Kirk Ciarrocca, whom Clifford has had to get to know mostly virtually since the COVID-19 pandemic canceled spring football and sent students home from the university in mid-March. Despite the challenges of not getting to work together in-person, the pair have still been able to form a strong relationship since they first met ahead of the Cotton Bowl game in December.

"Clifford and Kirk's relationship is going really good," head coach James Franklin said. "I think getting Kirk here early for our bowl game was important...I think we're heading in the right direction there." The relationship between the new offensive coordinator and his quarterback will be especially important this season, as the new offensive will have less time to work together before the scheduled start of the season on Sept. 5. Clifford will be tasked with leading an offense that, less than three months until the scheduled start of the regular season, he hasn't practiced in yet. The overall success of the transition from former OC Ricky Rahne's to Ciarrocca's offense will largely depend on Clifford's ability to excel in the system. - Centre Times
