Lions poised to add QB?

Posted by Jeff Rice on July 18, 2011 

Arguing about quarterbacks is quite possibly the favorite pastime of Penn State football fans. A young quarterback with strong bloodlines who has a chance to enter in future fan arguments will announce his choice of college this week.

Skyler Mornhinweg, the son of Philadelphia Eagles offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg and a star at St. Joseph's Prep in Philadelphia, will choose between Penn State, Alabama, Tennessee, Illinois and Stanford. Mornhinweg, a rising senior, had committed to Stanford as a sophomore but re-opened his commitment after Cardinal head coach Jim Harbaugh left for the NFL.

Penn State is relatively set at quarterback for the next few years -- Rob Bolden has three years of eligibility remaining and Paul Jones has four -- but the Nittany Lions have learned how quickly depth can become an issue at the position. Mornhinweg, who is known for his mobility as well as his arm, would be a solid pickup.
