Despite winning 10 games and participating in the Peach Bowl, Penn State received recognition on Tuesday with a significant number of players selected to attend the annual NFL Combine.

A total of 10 former Nittany Lions players will be present at the pre-draft event, taking place from February 29 to March 3 at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis. In comparison, Pitt will have three former players in attendance, and West Virginia will have one. This group of players is part of the 321 individuals invited to participate in the combine.

Among Penn State’s attendees are two first-round prospects, offensive lineman Olumuyiwa Fashanu and edge rusher Chop Robinson. NFL.com draft analyst Daniel Jeremiah ranks Fashanu as the No. 12 overall prospect, with Robinson securing the No. 25 spot. Other promising Penn State prospects include defensive lineman Adisa Isaac, tight end Theo Johnson, and defensive back Kalen King.

The Nittany Lions’ representation extends to offensive linemen Hunter Nourzad and Caedan Wallace, linebacker Curtis Jacobs, and defensive backs Johnny Dixon and Daequan Hardy of Penn Hills.

Pittsburgh’s attendees consist of wide receiver Bub Means, offensive lineman Matt Goncalves, and defensive back M.J. Devonshire from Aliquippa. Additionally, former Pitt quarterback Kedon Slovis, now at BYU for his final season of eligibility, has also received an invitation.

West Virginia will be represented by center Zach Frazier, considered one of the top prospects at his position, with Jeremiah ranking him as the No. 37 overall prospect in the class.
