College football saw former Iowa State quarterback Joel Lanning transition to linebacker and succeed this season. Lanning was named a FWAA All-American. Now, Penn State might be doing the same thing with back-up signal caller Tommy Stevens.

Coach James Franklin created a new position titled “Lion”. And in that spot, Stevens was listed as a starter.



If Stevens were to play some linebacker because he certainly has the frame for it, as he stands 6-foot-5 and weighs 228 pounds.
