The Penn State Nittany Lions are holding walk-on tryouts on Wednesday after practice. Penn State coach Bill O'Brien is hoping the team can find a couple players who can fit on the roster, particularly defensive backs. With Penn State thin at DB, that is the spot a walk-on might be most likely to make it, but it isn't the only way to make the team.

In particular, O'Brien said he'd like to test some defensive backs, since the team has depth issues at those positions. Otherwise, O'Brien said he's looking for "good football players" who are "hungry" and willing to help.

Both males and females are welcome to try out and if selected they can be eligible to play this season. There is not an official estimate for how many students will show up, but Penn State is preparing for a solid turnout.
