With national signing day complete, the Penn State Nittany Lions can now focus on getting on the field and preparing for the upcoming season during spring practice. There are several holes in the starting lineup left by graduating seniors that need to be filled.
There are also several players who have a lot to prove during spring practice.
Head coach Bill O'Brien will look to build off of his team's successful 2012 campaign. Despite off-field distractions and key starter transfers just weeks before the start of the season, the Nittany Lions finished with an impressive record of 8-4.
As the start of the new season draws near, fans will want to keep an eye on several storylines. The most important being who is going to replace quarterback Matt McGloin, who finished second in passing in the Big Ten a year ago.
Aside from just replacing starters, there are several returning players who will need to step up this spring in order to either move up the depth chart or hold off challenges from those behind them.
