Penn State Scandal: Approximately 25 Players Stay With Nittany Lions

On Wednesday morning, the Penn State Nittany Lions finally got some good news.

According to CBSSports.com, about 25 players have reaffirmed their commitment to the team.

The group made the statement of their intentions without taking any questions afterward from the media. Some of the team members who have decided to stay are running back Michael Zordich and fifth-year linebacker Michael Mauti, one of the best defensive players in the country.

"This program was not built by one man and this program is sure as hell not going to get torn down by one man,"said Mauti.

Another young man who is currently staying the course is running back Silas Redd, an explosive player whom the offense is built around. Redd couldn't be reached for comment, but his father was.

"Silas Redd is a student-athlete at Penn State University, period," said Silas Redd Sr.

It had been reported that Redd was being courted by USC.
