Penn State Football Roster – 2015

2014 Penn State Football Roster
Team celebrates an Allen Robinson Touchdown.

Below is a breakdown for the Penn State football roster for 2015. Currently, there are two tables: Full roster, and a scholarship outlook for the next few years. One Note: Anthony Alosi is still listed below. When we get confirmation on whether or not he’ll return, I’ll change the tables accordingly. (this is clearly old news now) Also, some of the positions are not accurate, since we just signed our recruits. As those become more clear over the course of the year, I’ll update the matrix with the more accurate positions. I’ll also update the matrix as we get new recruits.

If you have any suggestions or feedback, please leave them in the comments.

Update (6/22/15):

I meant to update this after Blue and White weekend, but life got in the way, and have quite a few things happen at the same time. Without further ado, here’s a summary of what’s changed since February:

  • Added 7 new recruits.
  • Scoured the internet for any informaiton on walkons, so the list should be updated accordingly.
  • Updated player numbers, either new freshmen getting numbers, of people changing their numbers.
  • Updated positions switches.

New Recruits

  1. Zechariah McPhearson
  2. Danny Dalton
  3. Alex Gellerstedt
  4. Michal Menet
  5. Will Fries
  6. Blake Gillikin
  7. Connor McGovern

New Walkons

  1. Gordon Bentley
  2. Joe Berg
  3. Kyler Diehl
  4. Will Eikenberry
  5. Seth Ford
  6. Yannik Haller
  7. Jackson Erdmann
  8. Jordan Wombacker
  9. Jan Johnson
  10. Jake Metzer
  11. Josh McPhearson
  12. Evan Stenfield
  13. Javon Turner

Departed Players

  1. Da’Quan Davis
  2. Brad Bars
  3. Kasey Gaines

Other Updates

  • Nyeem Wartman is now Nyeem Wartman-White
  • Jordan Lucas is now a Safety
  • Brandon Smith is now a LB (used to be a FB)
  • Anthony Smith is now a Safety (used to be CB)
  • Dominic Salomone is now a TE (used to be FB)
  • Amani Oruwariye is now a Safety (used to be CB)
  • Charles Idemudia is now a TE (used to be LB)
  • Bryant Harper is now a Safety (used to be CB)
  • Jack Haffner is now a LB (used to be RB)
  • Adam Geiger is now a Safety (used to be RB)
  • Evan Galimberti is now a tackle (used to be garde)
  • Jordan Dudas is now a LB (used to be S)
  • Desi Davis is now a CB (used to be WR)
  • Christian Campbell is now a CB (used to be S)

That’s it for now. There are are a few discrepancies with player numbers (which you can probably tell by three players with the same number), but those won’t be sorted until everybody’s enrolled. I should have them sorted out by the next update, which will be closer to the beginning of the season. Until then!

  1. This is fantastic! I’m a hardcore fan who follows recruiting closely and I love this. I believe I read recently that they planned on moving Lucas to Safety and moving Amani O. and Christian Campbell to Corner. Makes even more sense looking at your terrific depth chart matrix. Please keep this going!

  2. Stellar work as usual, 79!! One quibble: In the comments, you show Brad Bars as departed, but he is also listed as on the matrix as a DE. Please clarify.

    Other than that, good stuff! It’s still a little scary to see the youth of this team and some gaps at certain positions, but the upward trajectory seems to be there.

    Thanks for doing this!
