A tweet from Penn State TE Pat Freiermuth may indicate his plans for the 2020 season
Penn State fans may have received some good news on Wednesday. It appears that star tight end Pat Freiermuth has made a decision on the upcoming college football season.
While several star players are debating the decision between playing during the 2020 season or skipping the year and either attempting again in 2021 or pursuing a career in the NFL, Freiermuth seems to have made a choice already. If a post on Twitter is any indication, the tight end plans to play this fall.
Freiermuth took to Twitter to respond to a rumor that he might out of the 2020 season and begin working toward a career in the NFL.
“Pat Freiermuth is next to opt out and I’m going to be sad again,” the tweet said. “2020 needs to be shot into the sun.”
Freiermuth responded with the following tweet:

Freiermuth is considered one of the best tight ends in the B1G and is an early candidate to win the Mackey Award, presented to the top player at the position. Last year, the Penn State star recorded 507 yards and 7 touchdowns on 43 catches for the Nittany Lions.
Penn State finished with an 11-2 record.
The biggest news out of Penn State came Tuesday night, when Yahoo Sports’ Eric Edholm reported that linebacker Micah Parsons, the B1G’s reigning Linebacker of the Year and All-American selection, plans to opt out of the 2020 season and pursue a career in the NFL.
Parsons has not yet confirmed that decision.
